Summary and Info
Optical fiber telecommunications depend upon light traveling greatdistances through optical fibers. As light travels it tends todisperse and this results in some degree of signal loss. Ramanamplification is a technique that is effective in any fiber toamplify the signal light as it travels through transmission fibers,compensating for inevitable signal loss.* First comprehensive guideto Raman amplification, a technique whose use has exploded since 1997in order to upgrade fiber capacity;* Accessible to professionals justentering the field of optical fiber telecommunications;* Detailedenough for experts to use as a reference"
