New Optics Book Edited by ECE Professor Ted Morse


ECE Professor Ted Morse is an editor of the newly published book Specialty Optical Fibers Handbook. The book, co-edited by Alexis Méndez and published by Academic Press, is a comprehensive contributed volume that aims to describe and explain the design, fabrication, operating characteristics, and specific applications of the most popular and useful types of specialty optical fibers. These specialty fibers include any kind of optical fiber that has been architecturally manipulated to diverge from a conventional structure. For instance, metal-coated fibers can be utilized for bandwidth improvement, and hollow core fibers offer more controllable dispersion for sensitive medical procedures. Applications for these specialty fibers abound in the biomedical, sensors, and industrial fields, as well as in more traditional communications capacities. We congratulate Prof. Morse on this accomplishment.
