Advancing from 2, 000 entries in the second edition to 16, 000 entries in this edition, Fiber Optics Standard Dictionary offers a comprehensive, illustrated guide of definitions reflecting the latest trends in the design, development, manufacture, installation, operation, application, and maintenance of optical systems and components. Particular emphasis is placed on fiber optic and lightwave communications systems as well as other optical systems, from optical fiber and laser beam transmission systems to interfaces with electronic systems and imaging systems. This one-of-a-kind, exhaustive dictionary covers the current transition from the legacy of electrical, electronic, and radio systems to the latest fiber optic lightwave systems. It offers all those interested or actively engaged with the fields of communications, computers, data processing, and control systems that presently or potentially relate to the fields of fiber optics, lightwave communications, optical sensing, illumination, endoscopy, telemetering, and a myriad of other areas, with a plethora of universally accepted terms that are essential for product performance description. In particular the book is written for scientists and engineers who need to prepare technical papers as well as for the technician who needs to splice or install a direct buried fiber optic cable.volt ac amperes reactive: In an electrical circuit, a unit of the reactive power, i.e., the power in phase quadrature with the ...
