About this book

Subwavelength and Nanometer Diameter Optical Fibers provides a comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of research on nanoscale optical fibers including the basic physics and engineering aspects of the fabrication, properties and applications. The book discusses optical micro/nanofibers that represent a perfect fusion of optical fibers and nanotechnology on subwavelength scale and covers a broad range of topics in modern optical engineering, photonics and nanotechnology spanning from fiber optics, near-field optics, nonlinear optics, atom optics to nanofabrication and microphotonic components/devices. It is intended for researchers and graduate students in the fields of photonics, nanotechnology, optical engineering and materials science.

Dr. Limin Tong is a professor at Department of Optical Engineering and State Key Laboratory of Modern Optical Instrumentation of Zhejiang University, China; Dr. Michael Sumetsky is a researcher at OFS Laboratories, USA.

About the authors

While the author was at Harvard University, the pioneer work done by him and his colleagues in subwavelength and nanometer diameter optical fibers was reported on by leading magazines and newspapers such as Nature and the New York Times. The author has also been working on the fabrication, characterization and applications of crystal and glass optical fibers for more than 15 years. Research areas of the author include fundamentals of nanophotonics, optical nanostructures, optical fibers, and micro- and nanophotonic devices.
