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.

Topics covered: Cognitive Media Access Control; Measurement and Statistics of Spectrum Occupancy; Adaptation from Transmission Security to Cognitive Radio Communication; Wideband Voltage Controlled Oscillators for Cognitive Radio Systems; etc.
by Claude Shannon
Shannon presents results previously found nowhere else, and today many professors refer to it as the best exposition on the subject of the mathematical limits on communication. It laid the modern foundations for what is now coined Information Theory.
