During the past three decades, there has been tremendous growth in the general area of optics and photonics, in particular, in telecom networks based on optical fibres. The availability of different specialty optical fibres and guided-wave photonic devices has made the subject more interesting for advanced applications. At CSIR-Central Glass & Ceramic Research Institute (CGCRI) in Kolkata, facilities have been created for fabricating specialty fibres, such as fibres for amplifiers and lasers, fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs) and photonic crystal fibres (PCFs), including elaborate characterization facilities. Since the subject is growing rapidly, there was a need to generate suitably trained research and development manpower to put weight ...
