Optical Communications from a Fourier Perspective: Fourier Theory and Optical Fiber Devices and Systems covers Fourier theory and signal analysis over photonic components, including time lenses in optical communication. Sections cover wave propagation in optical waveguides based on Maxwell equations and the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Optical Fourier transform in the form of time lens is covered, for example in modulation format conversion and spectrum magnification, and couplers and their use for optical discrete Fourier transformation are also discussed. Other important subjects are discussed such as shot noise, thermal noise and also the basics of four wave mixing in relation to time lenses. Detailed derivations and a deeper background for the chapters are provided in appendices where appropriate. Some of the theory is more generally applicable beyond optical communication and is of relevance also for communications engineering. The Fourier theory dimension of the book presents the relationship between Fourier series and Fourier integrals and also the related Laplace transform.
