Beschreibung

Optical networks can carry significantly higher data rates than their equivalent electrical systems. Because of their unique properties and constraints, optical networks have their own design rules. In this paper, an algorithm for the optimization of optical networks is presented. In addition, an optimized optical decimal–binary converter is flexographically manufactured and examined for its transmission properties. It is verified that optimization can minimize attenuation by several orders of magnitude, and points of high optical losses can also be predicted and adjusted.
