Cover Paperback



This book provide solid base in fibre optics fundamentals for BTech and MTech students and also for practicing engineers in this field. The book contains more than 550 illustrations which give a comprehensive coverage of the technology involved in the fiber optics communications.

This gives an in-depth coverage of:
 fibre optics fundamentals
 optical fiber transmission characteristics
 optical fiber manufacturing and cables
 Signal degradation (distortion) in optical fibers
 optical fiber nonlinearities and their management
 optical sources and receivers
 optical amplifiers
 connectors and couplers
 fiber optic link design
 optical networks and cloud computing
 review of fiber optic sensors and their applications(Fiber optics sensors is altogether a different field in latest sensor technology)

About the Author

Gp Capt K S Mathur (Retd.) is a man with many accolades. He has served the Indian Air Force for twenty-nine years and has extensive knowledge in the field of electronics and communications. His first-hand experience in every field of telecommunications has earned him great recogination. After retirement, he shifted his focus to the academia where he gathered three and a half years of experience as a professor and the head of the department
(HOD) in electronics and communications engineering in three engineering colleges across India.

He has an innate passion towards the science of electronics and communication which reflects in his academic tenure. He completed his Bachelors in Electrical engineering from then Malaviya Regional Engineering College (now famously known as MNIT, Jaipur) and finished his Masters in Technology in Optoelectronics and Optical Communications from one of the most prestigious institute of India, IIT Delhi.

As a part of the Indian Air Force, he worked on a vast spectrum of communication technologies and contributed towards the knowledge bank of Indian Air Force. His interest in fiber optics technology is from 1988 onwards till today. His interest kept him to track advancements of this technology. He led various projects throughout their lifecycle by planning, designing, implementing, monitoring operations and continually improving the
communication networks.

Besides an eventful working career, he always had a knack in the field of research. This led him to submit a series of papers at several events and seminars which earned him the prestigious Best Paper Award at International Conference on Data Intensive Computing,2014 for Future Optical Network Technologies for Cloud Computing Platforms at Asia Pacific Institute of Management, New Delhi. It is this urge to write that finally concretised in his book.

The book not only bears the fruits of his work experience but also captures his ability to explain complex technical issues in a simplified and illustrated manner. His in-depth knowledge about Fiber Optics is clearly reflected in this ambitious project. The book covers the entire B.Tech syllabus of Electronics and Communications branch of engineering. The ‘advance’ topics included with every chapter promise a great potential for further research and development. Gp Capt Mathur’s book is innovative, and it reflects his expertise at every step.
