Summary "Polarization Optics in Telecommunications brings together recent advances in the field to create a standard, practical reference for component designers and optical fiber communication engineers. Beginning with a sound foundation in electromagnetism, the author offers a dissertation of the spin vector formalism of polarization and the classical interaction of light and media. Applications discussed include optical isolators, optical circulators, fiber, collimators, and a variety of applied waveplate and prism combinations. Also included is an extended discussion of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) and polarization dependent loss (PDI), their representation behavior, statistical properties, and measurement. This book draws extensively from the technical and patent literature and is an up-to-date reference for researchers and component designers in industry and academia."--Jacket.
