As a result of these rapid changes, the need for up-to-date texts that address this growing field from an interdisciplinary perspective persists. This book presents an overview of new optical communication technologies and a bird's-eye view of some of the more promising technologies among them. The book covers the theoretical but also the practical aspects of technology implementation in a way that is suitable for undergraduate- and graduate-level students, as well as researchers and professional engineers.
