    "Do you want to design a wireless transmitter or receiver for hand-held telephones? Have you wondered why the printed circuit wires on high-frequency circuits don't always run in a straight line? This valuable text will answer all of your questions regarding component parasitics and circuit characterization for rf/microwave amplifier, oscillator, and filter circuit design and analysis. You will understand why capacitors act as inductors and vice versa and why amplifiers work like oscillators, while oscillators for local area networks work more like local area heaters. Application of the information in Introduction to Microwave Circuits will reduce design-cycle time and costs, markedly increasing the probability of first-time success in printed circuit or monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) design. Several approaches are taken into consideration, such as the effects of currents on the ground plane, bypass and coupling capacitors, and nonlinear effects in linear cir uits. Featured topics include: * Incorporation of component parasitics in the design cycle * Closed form solution to oscillator design * Odd mode stability analysis * PIN diode analysis for high-power switching applications An integrated design example of a 1.25 GHz amplifier, oscillator, and filter printed circuit is also included, which could be useful in printed circuit board designs from tens of megahertz to tens of gigahertz. Introduction to Microwave Circuits provides the tools necessary to analyze or synthesize microwave circuits. This text is an essential reference for undergraduate students, microwave engineers, and administrators. Also, it will assist experienced designers in other fields to meet the current rapid expansion of communication system applications and work effectively in microwave circuit design. About the Author Robert J. Weber began his prolific career in the Solid State Research Laboratory at the Collins Rad o Company, later a part of Rockwell International. For 25 years, he worked on advanced development and applied research in the one- to ten-gigahertz frequency range and received several distinguished awards for his valuable contributions to the field. Dr. Weber is involved in ongoing experimental research in integrating microwave circuits with other devices such as MEMS, chemical sensors, and electro-optics.

  • Transmission Networks

    The transmission lines form the base for practically all types of networks, transporting the contents of the user to the destination in the core part of the networks. Transmission can be built up, for example, by utilizing good old copper wires, or more advanced lines such as fiber optics, radio links, or via satellite connections. The transmission line capacity can be increased by utilizing the same physical channels for different users, and even for different systems. This is called multiplexing. It can be done in practice via frequency division multiplexing (FDM) and time division multiplexing (TDM). The commercial telecommunications transmission networks have been constructed by utilizing pulse code modulation (PCM). The Carrier Ethernet Transport (CET) technology is a modern concept to connect the radio access and core parts of different systems in a flexible way. Cloud computing refers to virtualization of resources, which can be computing capacity and hosting facilities.

    How has the Internet, a medium that thrives on control, been accepted as a medium of freedom? Why is freedom increasingly indistinguishable from paranoid control? In Control and Freedom, Wendy Hui Kyong Chun explores the current political and technological coupling of freedom with control by tracing the emergence of the Internet as a mass medium. The parallel (and paranoid) myths of the Internet as total freedom/total control, she says, stem from our reduction of political problems into technological ones.Drawing on the theories of Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault and analyzing such phenomena as Webcams and face-recognition technology, Chun argues that the relationship between control and freedom in networked contact is experienced and negotiated through sexuality and race. She traces the desire for cyberspace to cyberpunk fiction and maps the transformation of public/private into open/closed. Analyzing "pornocracy," she contends that it was through cyberporn and the government's attempts to regulate it that the Internet became a marketplace of ideas and commodities. Chun describes the way Internet promoters conflated technological empowerment with racial empowerment and, through close examinations of William Gibson's Neuromancer and Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell, she analyzes the management of interactivity in narratives of cyberspace.The Internet's potential for democracy stems not from illusory promises of individual empowerment, Chun argues, but rather from the ways in which it exposes us to others (and to other machines) in ways we cannot control. Using fiber optic networks -- light coursing through glass tubes -- as metaphor and reality, Control and Freedom engages the rich philosophical tradition of light as a figure for knowledge, clarifica tion, surveillance, and discipline, in order to argue that fiber-optic networks physically instantiate, and thus shatter, enlightenment.

  • Electromagnetic Wave Propagation

    **Cutting-edge coverage of nonlinear phenomena occurring inside optical fibers** Nonlinear fiber optics is a specialized part of fiber optics dealing with optical nonlinearities and their applications. As fiber-optic communication systems have become more advanced and complex, the nonlinear effects in optical fibers have increased in importance, as they adversely affect system performance. Paradoxically, the same nonlinear phenomena also offer the promise of addressing the bandwidth bottleneck for signal processing for future ultra-high speed optical networks. _Nonlinear Effects in Optical Fibers_ provides a comprehensible introduction to the complex nonlinear phenomena occurring within optical fibers. It is the only book to seamlessly explore the physical and technical aspects of nonlinear effects as well as their impacts and applications, particularly for signal processing, pulse generation, and amplification. The author explores the latest and most significant res arch results in the field of nonlinear fiber optics, such as: * Highly nonlinear and photonic fibers * Intrachannel nonlinear effects * Dissipative and dispersion-managed solitons * Potential applications of nonlinear effects in the area of optical signal processing Chapter coverage includes the nonlinear Schrodinger equation, nonlinear phase modulation, self- and cross-phase modulation, polarization effects, four-wave mixing, stimulated Raman scattering, and stimulated Brillouin scattering. In addition, each chapter features a set of practice problems to reinforce retention of the material. This resource provides valuable insights for readers who have a basic understanding of electromagnetic theory, including senior undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in MS and PhD degree programs, engineers and technicians involved with the fiber-optics industry, and researchers working in nonline r fiber optics.

Now, the Fourth Edition continues this trusted resource's tradition of providing the most comprehensive FOCS coverage by incorporating the recent advances in the field, emphasizing both the physical understanding and engineering aspects. Featured are two new chapters: one deals with the advanced modulation formats (such as DPSK, QPSK, and QAM) that are increasingly being used for improving spectral efficiency of WDM lightwave systems; the other focuses on new techniques such as all-optical regeneration that are under development and likely to be used in future communication systems. All other chapters have been updated, and mater al has been restructured to be better suited for a two-semester course on optical communications. Students and researchers alike will benefit from the extensive pedagogical aids, including: * Extensive reference lists for each chapter * A survey of recent research material for each topic * Relevant end-of-chapter practice problems for instructors and students * A Solutions Manual available to instructors on request * State-of-the-art software on the enclosed CD, which students can use to design point-to-point optical links, as well as additional problems for each chapter Used worldwide as a textbook in many universities, Fiber-Optic Communication Systems is intended primarily for graduate students of fiber-optic communications. It is also a valuable resource for undergraduate courses at the senior level, as well as an indispensable professional reference for engineers and technicia s in the telecommunications industry and scientists working in the fields of fiber optics and optical communications.
