AN INTRODUCTION TO FIBER OPTICS SYSTEMS, 2/e, is suitable for students and professionals. The theme and key competitive advantage offered by the book is its pragmatic approach to the study of fiber optics in communications. The text integrates diverse elements of fiber optics and provides a clear picture of how they are used in fiber optics communication. By introducing the terminology used in fiber optics, and describing the building blocks of an optical fiber system, Powers' text permits students to process the initial design of optical links, and to understand the tradeoffs made in designing and using a fiber optics communication line.
