Book Overview
Integrated Optics explains the subject of optoelectronic devices and their use in integrated optics and fiber optic systems. The approach taken is to emphasize the physics of how devices work and how they can be (and have been) used in various applications as the field of optoelectronics has progressed from microphotonics to nanophotonics. Illustrations and references from technical journals have been used to demonstrate the relevance of the theory to currently important topics in industry. By reading this book, scientists, engineers, students and engineering managers can obtain an overall view of the theory and the most recent technology in Integrated Optics.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Integrated Optics: Theory and Technology explains the subject of optoelectronic devices and their use in integrated optics and fiber optic systems. The text emphasizes the physics of how devices work and how they can be used in various applications. Mathematical derivations and the development of design equations are provided where necessary to explain phenomena and engineering principles, but a strong effort has been made to avoid obscuring important concepts with mathematical details. Illustrations and references from technical journals have been used to demonstrate the relevance of the theory to currently important topics in industry. This sixth edition of Integrated Optics: Theory and Technology includes updates and revisions in all chapters, as well as a completely new chapter on nanophotonics. Problems are included at the end of each chapter to develop students' knowledge. Scientists, engineers, students and engineering managers can utilize this book to obtain an overall view of the theory and the most recent technology in integrated optics.
