Due to the skyrocketed increase of internet users and services, high-speed communication is required to to fulfill enormous demand of bandwidth. In this direction, all optical networks with wavelength divisional multiplexing (WDM) technology have become essential to develop such high-speed communication. This book deals with the principles and fabrication of optical network devices such as wavelength router [1–6], WDM [7–11], add/drop multiplexer (ADM) [12–17], photonic switch [18–23], Erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) [24–26], and EDFA gain equalizer [27–30].
