About this Textbook

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.

About the authors

The author has been working in the field of optoelectronics for over 40 years, first in industry (Hughes Research Laboratories, Malibu, CA) and later as a professor at the University of Delaware. In 1995, Dr. Hunsperger was made a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in recognition of his work in the field.

Reviews

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

"This book is a success. Already the fifth edition is now edited including four new chapters...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."

Praise for Hunsperger's, Intergrated Optics

"The text is comprehensive enough for an introductory course in integrated optics, yet concise enough to be easily readable by the practicing engineer. Well-organized, with references and an index, the book is suitable for use as a classroom text or a specialist's reference."

"This book is a success. … The book is an outgrowth of a graduate level, single-semester course in integrated optics … . 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. This book should not be missed in any libraries and laboratories dealing with modern optics." (K. Kraemer, Optik, Vol. 114 (2), 2003)
