AbstractIn the continually advancing information age, the needs for rapidand high-performance data communications capabilities areincreasing exponentially. The capabilities of strictly electroniccommunications technologies cannot keep pace with these rapidlyincreasing demands, and optoelectronics and fiber opticstechnologies have stepped in to meet the challenge. Fiber opticsare now heavily used in long distance telecommunications as wellas high-speed data communications and are rapidly gaining marketshare in desktop LANs. There have been great technicaladvancements recently in optoelectronics manufacturing andconsequently in the performance of fiber optic links whichutilize the advanced optoelectronics components. However,automated computer-aided design (CAD) tools for the design offiber optic links have not followed the same pace of development.There is a lack of reliable software for the simulation,analysis, and design of fiber optic links. The continuingadvancement of fiber optics technologies requires that CAD toolsfor their design be developed which will accurately model all thesignificant performance degradations and nonlinear effectsinherent in these systems to facilitate their designoptimization. RSoft, Inc. proposes to develop advanced softwarefor fiber optic link simulation and analysis which will supportcost-effective design of high-performance fiber optic links,including multimode fiber LANs.
