New chapters on polymer integrated optics, optical amplifiers, micro-opto-electrical-mechanical devices, and photonic and microwave wireless systems
Intended for scientists, engineers, students and engineering managers in the area of integrated optics
Includes 132 exercises
This book 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. 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 not obscure 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. By reading this book, scientists, engineers, students and enginering managers can obtain an overall view of the theory and the most recent technology in Integrated Optics. In this fifth edition all chapters have been revised and updated. The chapters on Polymer and Fiber Integrated Optics, Optical Amplifiers, Micro-Optical-Electro-Mechanical Devices, and Photonic and Microwave Wireless Systems are completely new. Problems help the students to deepen their knowledge.
