Wavelength Division Multiplexing: A Practical Engineering Guide

Klaus Grobe and Michael Eiselt

Wiley, 2013; $125.00 (hardcover).

Wavelength division Multiplexing (WDM) is an efficient means of increasing transport capacity. This book treats WDM from a practical, application-oriented point of view, in a clear and succinct manner.  It starts with optical fiber effects and gradually advances to components of optical fiber, non-fiber related effects, modulation formats for WDM, transport systems, and fiber and their interrelation in state-of-the-art WDM systems and networks.

This book would be an excellent reference for advanced undergraduate students and graduate researchers, as well as professional engineers.
