About this book

The Essence of Dielectric Waveguides is a comprehensive overview of the fundamental behavior of dielectric waveguides, essential to interpreting the numerical data results of electromagnetic waveguide problems. A wide range of waveguide coverage, from the familiar types (step-index optical fiber and planar) to the more striking (elliptical and triangular-core fibers), offers readers a rare in-depth look into the dielectric waveguide field.

Readers will find an analysis of important applications in optical communications, such as optical fibers, fiber solitons, WDM shepherd pulses, ultra low-loss THz guides, photonic crystal guides, metamaterial guides, and plasmon sub-wavelength guides. Thorough mathematical treatment, in addition to experimental data and measurements, are provided throughout the chapters as support to the theories discussed. Researchers and engineers involved with optical communications, photonics and applied electromagnetics will find The Essence of Dielectric Waveguides a valuable reference.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is intended to cover the fundamentals of wave-guiding structures over the whole electromagnetic spectrum. … workers in the field, who employ exclusively numerical methods to treat their problems, would greatly profit reading this comprehensive text … . The coverage of subjects is ample, diversified, and many up to date arguments are treated. … very useful to researchers and students involved with optical communications photonics and applied electromagnetics. … researcher in the field should have this book in his/her personal library.” (Mario Bertolotti, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 52 (1), 2011)
