  • Covers theoretical and practical aspects of planar waveguides and other confined geometries including optical fibers
  • Discusses applications for confined waveguides in security and life sciences, including visualization of cell structures and Raman identification of gaseous compounds
  • Written by respected experts and researchers in these specialized subjects
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the theoretical concepts and experimental applications of planar waveguides and other confined geometries, such as optical fibres. Covering a broad array of advanced topics, it begins with a sophisticated discussion of planar waveguide theory, and covers subjects including efficient production of planar waveguides, materials selection, nonlinear effects, and applications including species analytics down to single-molecule identification, and thermo-optical switching using planar waveguides. Written by specialists in the techniques and applications covered, this book will be a useful resource for advanced graduate students and researchers studying planar waveguides and optical fibers.
