Development of Wavelength Division Multiplexed Fiber Optic Communication Link. - 1996

The goal of this thesis is to study the development of a finer optic communication link that employs the wavelength division multiplexing method of transmitting multiple channels along a single fiber. It utilizes a four wave mixing process of Coherent Ant-Stokes Raman Active Scattering in a Raman active cladding layer above the guiding layer. Software (FORTRAN code) is developed to simulate waveguide and wave mixing processes as well as propagation down an optical fiber.
