Polymer Fibre Optics
Materials, Physics, and Application
by Mark G. Kuzyk

Polymer Fibre Optics examines the scientific principles, characterization techniques, and fabrication methods used to design and produce high quality optical fibers.

Features:

  • Investigates the fundamental physics and aspects of light interaction in polymer fibers, such as refractive index, optical loss, bandwidth, light sources, transmission, and amplifiers
  • Details the most useful characterization techniques, including the scientific basis, practical criteria, and experimental design considerations for each
  • Contains ample illustrations of fiber structures, plotted data, experimental setup, and fabrication apparatus
  • Offers new approach to theoretical derivations, supported by figures and diagrams
  • Describes basic processing and fabrication techniques for making materials and fibers
  • Devotes a full chapter to pioneering research and future applications of smart photonic materials
