About this Textbook

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.

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)
