Fiber Optics Tutorials

Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta

Today I would simply like to make you aware of some interesting resources on the RP Photonics website. Outside the encyclopedia, we have two comprehensive physics-based tutorials on fiber optics:

Sure, there are already plenty of fiber optics tutorials available on the Internet. However, I believe we go substantially further than most of these, discussing the underlying physics and depth and with care.

If you agree that these are useful high-quality materials, you are welcome to tell others, for example by linking to these tutorials on your website. If you are preparing a fiber optics course for students at a university, you may find a lot of inspiration from these tutorials.

This article is a posting of the Photonics Spotlight, authored by Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta. You may link to this page, because its location is permanent. See also the Encyclopedia of Laser Physics and Technology.

Note that you can also receive the articles in the form of a newsletter or with an RSS feed.
