Appendix B: Useful Constants and Data
  • Covers all major areas of fiber optics.
  • Uses an algebra-based approach and leaves out much of the high-level mathematics.
    - However, presents a sufficient amount of theory and mathematics to explain the topics and prepare students for further exploration, if desired.
  • Provides an abundance of practical examples.
  • Contains a chapter on measurements and testing equipment.
  • Offers flexibility in coverage - allowing some sections to be omitted by those students who are studying them in more depth in other courses.
