Genre:

Fiber optics has become the backbone of all communications systems, including telecom - landline and wireless - the Internet, CATV, LANs, etc. All these fiber optic networks require testing to ensure they are installed properly and to troubleshoot problems when they arise. Fiber optic manufacturers and network users say that testing is the most important aspect of installation and operation but often the least well understood. This book has been written by the FOA to provide a comprehensive but understandable technical guide to this important topic. The Fiber Optic Association, Inc. (FOA) was founded in 1995 by a group of instructors who were highly experienced at teaching fiber optics. They represented educational institutions, manufacturers and commercial and government users of fiber optics, including all types of fiber optic applications. All were concerned about the absence of standards for teaching fiber optic technicians and industry certifications to show their competence. The FOA was chartered to promote fiber optics through education, certification and standards. Today the FOA is recognized around the world as the authority on fiber optic training and certification. The FOA has always tried to provide the world with sources of technically correct unbiased information on fiber optics using both print and electronic media. For such a broad subject as testing fiber optic networks, we depend on the FOA Online Reference Guide on the FOA website (www.foa.org), the largest and most widely used reference on fiber optics to supplement the material in this book. This book and the FOA Online Reference Guide provide a basic reference for testing fiber optic networks and a study guide for FOA Fiber Optic Specialist Certification in testing.

Schon die erste Auflage des englischen Lehrbuchs 'Fundamentals of Photonics' zeichnete sich durch seine ausgewogene Mischung von Theorie und Praxis aus, und deckte in detaillierter Darstellung die grundlegenden Theorien des Lichts ab. Es umfasste sowohl die Themen Strahlenoptik, Wellenoptik, elektromagnetische Optik, Photonenoptik, sowie die Wechselwirkung von Licht und Materie, als auch die Theorie der optischen Eigenschaften von Halbleitern. Die Photonik-Technologie hat eine rasante Entwicklung genommen seit der Publikation der ersten Ausgabe von 'Fundamentals of Photonics' vor 15 Jahren. Die nun vorliegende Zweite Auflage des Marksteins auf dem Gebiet der Photonik trägt mit zwei neuen und zusätzlichen Kapiteln den neuesten technologischen Fortschritten Rechnung: Photonische Kristalle sowie Ultrakurzpuls-Optik. Zudem wurden alle Kapitel gründlich überarbeitet und viele Abschnitte hinzugefügt, so z.B. über Laguerre-Gauss Strahlen, die Sellmeier-Gleichung, Photonenkristall-Wellenleiter, photonische Kristallfasern, Mikrosphären-Resonatoren, Optische Kohärenz Tomographie, Bahndrehimpuls des Photons, Bohrsche Theorie, Raman-Verstärker, rauscharme Avalanche-Photodioden, Abstimmkurven und Dispersions-Management.

Genre:

Depending on one's goals, v10 is: a guidebook for becoming a professional fiber installer, a training and reference manual for trainers and field supervisors, a manual for field installers, a study guide for passing basic and advanced certification examinations from the Fiber Optic Association [FOA], and an educational book for those interested in fiber optic communications. The information in PFOIv10 applies to data networks, data centers, telephone networks, fiber to the home networks, optical LANs, fiber to the antenna, distributed antenna systems, and CATV systems. This comprehensive manual supports achieving the five goals of installation for cables, connectors, splices, passive devices, and optoelectronics. This well-written and highly organized, 35 chapter, 496 page manual presents the concepts, numbers, product advantages, and installation and testing procedures required to achieve and verify the five goals of installation: low cost (do it right the first time), lowest possible optical power loss, low reflectance, short installation time, and high reliability. Chapters 1-9 detail essential information on available products, their most important performance parameters, and advantages of product types. This information sensitizes the installer to the capabilities and limitations of the products he installs. With this sensitivity, the installer understands how his actions influence power loss, reflectance, and reliability. Chapters 10-13 present the principles and methods of installation, through which the installer achieves the five goals. Chapters 14-20 detail testing and inspection principles and methods, which enable the installer to verify proper and reliable installation. Chapters 20-28 provide detailed, cookbook-like instructions for performing installation, inspection, and testing activities. By following the instructions in these 9 chapters, the installer develops 38 critical skills and abilities essential to achieving the five goals of a professional installer. Chapters 29-35 focus information in previous chapters on 7 applications: outside plant, fiber to the antenna, distributed antenna systems, fiber to the home [PON], data centers, optical LANs, and fiber characterization. Chapters 1-20 enable installers to pass the FOA CFOT basic certification examination. Chapters 10-17 and 29-35 enable installers to pass 10 of the FOA advanced certification [CFOS] examinations. PFOIv10 provides the trainer with tools for effective training: modular organization, 35 focused chapters, 749 review questions, 651 figures, and 75 tables. The modular organization facilitates training programs with multiple goals: basic skill development, advanced skill development, connector installation, splicing, inspection and testing. Finally, PFOIv10 includes 10 chapters of hands-on activities. PFOIv10 is based on the author's extensive field and training experience, which includes: Mr. Pearson has the following credentials: 39 years in fiber optics, 27 years of training manual development, 554 fiber presentations, 8886 fiber trainees, 49,728 connectors installed or supervised, 104,256 insertion loss tests supervised, 30,266 OTDR traces made or supervised, and 12 years as a Director of the FOA and developer of certification examinations. The author has been recognized as a Master Instructor by the FOA and, for 15 years, was a BICSI Master Instructor. He has degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology [BS] and Case-Western University [MS]. Both degrees are in Metallurgy and Materials Science.

Successful Fiber Optic Installation

Genre: Computers

The objective of this Rapid Start Guide [RSG] is to 'jump start you' on your path to becoming successful in fiber optic installation. This RSG will 'jump start' you by providing two types of information. The first type is the basic information the installer must have to get started in fiber optic installation. Without this information, the installer will have little chance of achieving the three goals of installation. The second type of information is the more subtle information that the installer must have to be consistently successful as a professional installer. In addition, this subtle information enables the installer to troubleshoot problems. As this is a Rapid Start Guide (RSG), it will provide the first type and a list of the information of the second type. See 'Other Terms' for a list of this subtle, but essential information. This Guide will reference the Building Wiring Standard, TIA/EIA-568-C, which is the latest version of the document used by most data network designers to design and implement their data networks.
