ELET 270 Fundamentals of Fiber Optic Communications

This course examines the nature and application of fiber optic communications systems as they are used today. Topics include decibel notation, the nature of light signal, modulation methods, optical transmission lines, optical transmitters, receivers and the limitations and advantages of fiber communications networks. The student will develop an understanding of the basic elements (both theoretical and practical) of fiber optic communications systems. This will provide a foundation for the appropriate technical knowledge and skills required to support the many kinds of fiber communications networks that exist today.
