[1] From what I know, ANS was formed by Merit, IBM and MCI in 1990 to
    run the NSFNET backbone. Could somebody update me on the current
    status of ANS - i.e. after NSFNETs demise in 1995, did ANS become
    independent and does it qualify as an NSP in its own right?

Yes, they did... and they were bought <sigh> by AOL.

[3] Is there a web page which lists all the public CIXs and NAPs           
around the world? Pointers appreciated.

Unlikely.

[4] Some recent threads on NANOG discussed physical layer issues like
    SONET, SDH, circuit layout etc. Could somebody point me to             
technical papers / articles / books which describe fiber and           
copper technology in detail.

Ask in comp.dcom.telecom.tech.
