Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Electromagnetic field theory (fields, waveguides, etc.) is an important prerequisite. EEM021 High frequency electromagnetic waves or equivalent, will prepare the student well. Fundamental semiconductor physics (bands, pn-junctions) as well as advanced calculus (differential equations) is also important. Students within the MPWPS Master's Program will generally be very well prepared.

Syfte

The aim of the course is to describe the components and concepts of fiber optical communication systems, which form the backbone of the Internet and are also becoming increasingly popular over short distances. By combining theoretical descriptions with system aspects, the student will be provided with both theoretical and practical understanding of such systems.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

- Describe the fundamental properties and understand the limitations of fiber optical communication systems.

- Evaluate a system design and understand the design choices and trade-offs that have been made.

- Describe optical fibers in terms of dispersion, attenuation, and to some extent nonlinearities as well as their impact on signal transmission.

- Describe and analyze different transmitter implementations, primarily using external modulators for both binary and multi-level modulation techniques.

- Analyze receivers with and without optical pre-amplifiers and make proper design choices in specific cases. Understand and analyze all relevant noise mechanisms in optical receivers and evaluate the bit error rate.

- Understand the fundamental properties of erbium-doped fiber amplifiers and Raman amplification and quantify the impact from using them in optical transmission links.

- Evaluate different system implementations such as wavelength division multiplexing and time division multiplexing.

Innehåll

After the introduction of some of the basic concepts the following topics will be discussed:

- Optical fibers: modes, loss, dispersion, nonlinearities

- Optical transmitters and receivers

- Multichannel systems

- Optical amplifiers: gain and noise properties

- Bit error rate and power penalties

- Dispersion management

- Advanced lightwave systems

Organisation

The course consists of:

- 14 two-hour lectures

- 7 problem-oriented exercises

- 2 compulsory laboratory exercises (four hours each)

- 4 voluntary home assignments
