Fiber Optic Communication Syst (EET-265)
Principles and techniques associated with the transmission of digital and analog signals through optical waveguides (fibers). Topics will include: properties of optical fibers and waveguides, components and basic circuits of optical communication systems, baseband and pulse modulation, quantization, digital signaling techniques, multiplexing and coherent optical communications. The laboratory component will provide hands-on experience in the handling of fibers, splicing and connecting, measurement of fiber properties, the building and testing of a fiber optic communication system. Prerequisites: EET 213. 3 lecture and 3 laboratory hours per week. 4 credit hours.
