  • Examples of Electromagnetic Simulation Using FDTD

    This chapter presents three examples of electromagnetic (EM) simulation that illustrate the power and flexibility of the FDTD method. First, it describes a one-dimensional simulation of an optical pulse in a nonlinear material similar to material in a nonlinear optical fiber. Then, it discusses the use of the FDTD method in characterizing a two-dimensional electromagnetic structure. It finds the eigenfrequencies and corresponding eigenfunctions of the Schrödinger equation in nanoscale quantum structures. Finally, the chapter explains a three-dimensional simulation of LC radio frequency (RF) coils, and describes how signal-processing techniques can be used in characterizing the LC loop.

  • Appendix C: Transfer Matrices

    The phenomenal growth in Internet traffic has lead to a huge increase in demand for data transmission capacity on a worldwide level. As a result, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology emerged, which makes it possible to transmit a large number of optical channels on a single optical fiber. An equally significant development occurred in optical networks, where switching and routing of signals takes place in the optical domain. This technology places special demands on the optical sources (lasers) used in the system. This text offers a description of the optical sources (equipment and devices) designed to meet these demands. Sources for DWDM Systems is intended for the engineers and graduate students working on optical networks. There is currently a nearly explosive interest in optical networks and the components required for such networks, but there is presently no single work which covers the variety of optical sources which may be used. This book will cover a particular component, tunable lasers, which is the next "big thing" in DWDM. The primary market are engineers developing tuneable lasers for optical networks, as well as graduate students enrolled in the optical engineering curriculum, especially: optical communication, semiconductor lasers, optical networks, and/or components for optical networks.

  • Power Conversion

    Since its initial implementation in Gotland, Sweden during the 1950s, application of an HVDC system into an AC system has established itself as an important aspect of power system planning. Presently, due to significant developments in semiconductor devices, there is much ongoing research related to Flexible AC Transmission systems (FACTs), which provides system stability by controlling the real and reactive power. The main concerns of an HVDC system include bulk power transmission and interconnection of AC systems. Since most of the HVDC system capacity is in the range of several hundreds of MW, thyristors are expected to be used as the principal semiconductor devices for a while. A thyristor is not only turned on by the gate current but it may also be triggered by light. This has allowed the development of the LTT (Light Triggered Thyristor) which is triggered by a light pulse fed through an optical fiber.
