Handbook of Optical Through the Air Communications
by David A. Johnson
Publisher: Imagineering E-Zine 2008
Number of pages: 68
This handbook is an introduction to the basic concepts of optical communications for experimenters, engineers, and scientists. It discusses some of the physics of light and how light can be manipulated, modulated and transmitted to send information. It provides details of the components used in light transmitters and receivers, describes some signal processing techniques, and gives detailed information on building a long range optical transceiver.

This intuitive yet rigorous introduction derives the core results of digital communication from first principles. Theory, rather than industry standards, motivates the approaches, and key results are stated with all the required assumptions.
This book provides the electronic engineer with the knowledge of: what the CDR function and structure are; where a CDR is used in a communication network; the mathematical models (just three!) needed to understand the CDR operation.
