EL-GY 6583 Fiber Optic Communications

3 Credits
This course deals with the operating principles of optical communications systems and fiber-optic communication technology. The main elements of systems are presented in block diagrams and discussed individually. The advantages and disadvantages and the applications of Fiber Optic Communications Systems are discussed. Topics include: overview of optical communication systems, review of optics, review of analog and digital communications, the characteristics of optical fibers, optical waveguides, optical sources and transmitters, optical detectors and receivers, optical amplifiers, noise and detection, impairment in optical communication systems and optical network design issues. Upon completion of this course, students are familiar with the principles and technology of optical communication systems, and are able to design a simple point-to-point optical communications link, including bandwidth, loss, signal to noise ratio (S/N) and bit error rate considerations.

Prerequisite(s): Graduate status or EE-UY 3604 .
