Abstract: Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a modulation technique which is now used in most new and emerging broadband wired and wireless communication systems because it is an effective solution to intersymbol interference caused by a dispersive channel. Very recently a number of researchers have shown that OFDM is also a promising technology for optical communications. This paper gives a tutorial overview of OFDM highlighting the aspects that are likely to be important in optical applications. To achieve good performance in optical systems OFDM must be adapted in various ways. The constraints imposed by single mode optical fiber, multimode optical fiber and optical wireless are discussed and the new forms of optical OFDM which have been developed are outlined. The main drawbacks of OFDM are its high peak to average power ratio and its sensitivity to phase noise and frequency offset. The impairments that these cause are described and their implications for optical systems discussed.

Abstract: The extension of maser techniques to the infrared and optical region is considered. It is shown that by using a resonant cavity of centimeter dimensions, having many resonant modes, maser oscillation at these wavelengths can be achieved by pumping with reasonable amounts of incoherent light. For wavelengths much shorter than those of the ultraviolet region, maser-type amplification appears to be quite impractical. Although use of a multimode cavity is suggested, a single mode may be selected by making only the end walls highly reflecting, and defining a suitably small angular aperture. Then extremely monochromatic and coherent light is produced. The design principles are illustrated by reference to a system using potassium vapor.

TL;DR: Understanding fiber optic transmission systems requires a knowledge of the characteristics of optoelectronic transmitters and receivers, which do not differ much from traditional copper pairs (choice of analog to digital modulation, total attenuation, etc.).
Abstract: Industrial manufacturing of low loss optical fiber cables and their specific splicing toolings, together with recent developments of optoelectronic components will lead to real systems installations in the 1980’s. The requirements for these new systems are related to some of the fiber characteristics: protection against electromagnetic perturbations radiation leakage small size low weight electrical isolation high bandwidth low attenuation low cost expectation Understanding fiber optic transmission systems requires a knowledge of the characteristics of optoelectronic transmitters and receivers, which do not differ much from traditional copper pairs (choice of analog to digital modulation, total attenuation, etc.). Therefore, throughout this course we will limit our effort to descriptions of specific elements, essentially those whose parameters are directly connected to system performance.
