1. Given the relation:
! = C2
(a) Derive an expression for the phase velocity.
(b) Derive an expression for the
Tutorial 3 Solutions
(a) Since the fiber has zero dispersion at 1310 nm, the link is loss limited.
(b) BER = 0.5eM where M is the average number of photons received during a 1 bit. For BER = 1012 ,
M must be 27. From the notes, the average po
Tutorial 2 Solutions
3. From Tutorial 1
Since N A = n1 2 N A =
= 10 ns/km and n2 = 1.45 we get N A = 0.093.
Maximum bit rate =
Tutorial 4 Solutions
We have waves that make 1 pass, 3 passes, 5 passes,. . . through the cavity before leaving the second
mirror. Adding up the contributions by each of these waves, we get the amplitude of the ou

` = The length of longest ray
L = The length of the shortest ray
Based on the geometrical considerations we can write:
where sin c =
The velocity of light in the core is v =
1. How is LED output modulated?
a) externally by varying current delivered to an external modulator
b) directly by varying drive current
c) directly by varying voltage applied to an external modulator
d) directly by varying LED operating temper
Derive the power transfer function of the Fabry-Perot Filter.
Show that the resonant frequncies fn of a Fabry-Perot cavity satisfy fn = f0 + nf , where n is an
integer, for some xed f0 and f .
Derive the expression for the nesse of the Fa
