This second edition of Digital Optical Communications provides a comprehensive treatment of the modern aspects of coherent homodyne and self-coherent reception techniques using algorithms incorporated in digital signal processing (DSP) systems and DSP-based transmitters to overcome several linear and nonlinear transmission impairments and frequency mismatching between the local oscillator and the carrier, as well as clock recovery and cycle slips. These modern transmission systems have emerged as the core technology for Tera-bits per second (bps) and Peta-bps optical Internet for the near future.

Featuring extensive updates to all existing chapters, Advanced Digital Optical Communications, Second Edition:

Contains new chapters on optical fiber structures and propagation, optical coherent receivers, DSP equalizer algorithms, and high-order spectral DSP receiversExamines theoretical foundations, practical case studies, and MATLAB® and Simulink® models for simulation transmissionsIncludes new end-of-chapter practice problems and useful appendices to supplement technical information

Downloadable content available with qualifying course adoption

Advanced Digital Optical Communications, Second Edition supplies a fundamental understanding of digital communication applications in optical communication technologies, emphasizing operation principles versus heavy mathematical analysis. It is an ideal text for aspiring engineers and a valuable professional reference for those involved in optics, telecommunications, electronics, photonics, and digital signal processing.

"This book is excellent and potentially can be used by many universities. ... I have not seen that any books are better than this book in this topic."
-John Xiupu Zhang, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

"The main strengths of the book are that it is comprehensive, covers the material in depth, and is up-to-date, covering topics which, in many cases, are still being actively investigated by the research community. It provides explicit guidance on the computer simulation of optical communication systems and is very accessible, being well structured and clearly written."
-Robert Killey, University College London
