New professionally written lab assignments are now freely available to OptiSystem users. Professors will need to personally request the “answers” password by emailing email@example.com with their full signature (name, position, university, address).
LESSON 1 – LASER Transmitters
Investigate the L-I curves and spectrum of a FP Laser and observe the effects of different cavity characteristics. Learn to perform parameter sweeps in OptiSystem.
LESSON 3 – Loss and Power Budget
Investigate the effect of loss on optical system performance and characterize the system with the power budget equation. Use OptiSystem to optimize the fiber length of a communication system.
LESSON 6 – Optical Amplifiers – Erbium Doped Fibers
Study the characteristics of EDFAs alone and in a system. Reanalyze the importance of receiver noise and the effect of amplification on the quality of an optical system.
LESSON 7 – Single Mode Fiber – Nonlinearity
Characterize analytically and through simulation the effects of nonlinearity on optical systems.
LESSON 8 – QAM Transmitter
Investigate the method for measuring the BER accurately and the distortions present in coherent modulators.
LESSON 9 – QAM Receiver
Build a coherent receiver based on the 90 degree optical hybrid and further investigate the QAM format.
