From the Publisher
"This book provides reviews of a topic of increasing importance: high-speed optical interconnects. The coverage combines topics not often assembled in book format, and the authors are active researchers in the field. It saves the reader arduous hours that would otherwise be spent searching and reviewing reams of published literature to get up to speed on these rapidly evolving topics."
—Tony Chan Carusone, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada
"… a very good overview of the most cutting-edge interconnect technologies as they apply to computer and communication networks. … The importance now being placed on interconnects as part of an integrated solution for a better and more prolific information processing paradigm is an absolute necessity. Not only because the of the overall power consumption issues we face, but because a world-wide, exponentially expanding interconnect medium will ultimately unite our thoughts, goals and expressions as a global society. This will allow ever newer architectures and models to be conceived, perhaps based on biological systems - where we have consistently found that (our) whole is greater than the sum of (our) parts."
