Description

Researchers from around the world summarize recent research into the fibers, which are used for transmitting and processing optical communications compatible with the Internet. They cover fabrication techniques for plastic optical fibers and gradient-index polymer optical fibers, the gradient refractive index distribution in rare-earth-doped polymer optical fibers, polymer optical fiber gratings, polymer-based integrated optics devices, high-capacity transmission systems, plastic optical fiber passive devices, and second-order nonlinear effects in optical fibers. The material should be accessible to scientists and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students in optical fibers, polymer fiber technology, telecommunications, and related fields.
