Demonstrates that practical photonic-crystal devices leverage MEMS technology for integration and packaging
Discusses the role of miniaturization in the integration and packaging of photonic microsystems
Describes fundamental limits on scaling of optical devices and systems
Offers analytical descriptions of Photonic Crystals
Describes practical application of Photonic-Crystal technology
Photonic Microsystems: Micro and Nanotechnology Applied to Optical Devices and Systems
describes MEMS technology and demonstrates how MEMS allow miniaturization, parallel fabrication, and efficient packaging of optics, as well as integration of optics and electronics.
Photonic Microsystems also describes the phenomenon of Photonic crystals (nanophotonics) and demonstrates their ability to enable synthesis of materials with optimized optical characteristics. This provides control over optical fields over sub-wavelength distances, leading to devices with improved scaling and functionality compared to traditional optics.
Photonic Microsystems: Micro and Nanotechnology Applied to Optical Devices and Systems concludes with an up-to-date discussion of the need for the combination of MEMS and Photonic crystals by demonstrating that practical photonic-crystal devices leverage MEMS technology for integration and packaging.
Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and illustrative applications Olav Solgaard discusses:
How Practical photonic-crystal devices leverage MEMS technology for integration and packaging
The role of miniaturization in the integration and packaging of photonic microsystems
The fundamental limits on scaling of optical devices and systems
The analytical descriptions of Photonic Crystals and the practical application of Photonic-Crystal technology
Teaches the fundamentals of optics and makes micro and nano photonics accessible to non experts
About The MEMs Reference Shelf:
"The MEMs Reference Shelf is a series devoted to Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMs) which combine mechanical, electrical, optical, or fluidic elements on a common microfabricated substrate to create sensors, actuators, and microsystems. The series, authored by leading MEMs practitioners, strives to provide a framework where basic principles, known methodologies and new applications are integrated in a coherent and consistent manner."
