Course: ECE 666L. Fiber Optic Communications Lab (1)
Prerequisites: ECE 460/L. Corequisite: ECE 666. This lab accompanying course ECE 666 covers fiber optic communication design, measurements and simulations. This includes numerical aperture, fiber attenuation, power distribution in single mode fibers, mode distribution in multimode fibers, fiber coupling efficiency and connectors/splices losses. Design, construction and simulation of WDM communication system components also are covered. Individual and group projects are assigned to students. 3 hours lab per week.
