8 Guided Wave Optical Transmission Lines Transfer Functions

Launching optical modulated signals of information channels over a guided wave medium, especially the optical fibers, and their propagation are critical for optical communication systems. The transmittance in terms of the fields or intensity of the guided waves is very critical for determining the quality of signals at the receiving end. Transfer functions are commonly used in electrical systems to interpret a number of quantities as a function of frequency range. Similarly in optical systems, the transfer function is indeed closely related to the transmittance of the guided light-waves, not only in linear but also in nonlinear dynamics of signals.
