Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I recommend this book as a unique and excellent reference for researchers aiming at next-generation optical interconnections and all interested in future super-performance integrated electronics systems."
—Prof. Osamu Wada - Kobe University, Japan

"The book gives excellent details on theoretical fundamentals, circuit analysis, and experimental demonstrations. The self-organized integration approach is feasible and innovative for cost reduction and space saving, both of which are vital for new technology implementations."
—Dr. Michael G. Lee - Fujitsu Laboratories of America, USA

"Toward the industrialization of optical interconnects, we have to think about how we can reduce cost and size. In this book, Prof. Yoshimura gives us an excellent approach to solving the problem: developing the self-organized integration of optoelectronic devices. His broad vision based on his extensive experience will be highly useful to young scientists."
—Dr. Tetsuo Sato - Nissan Chemical Industries, LTD., Japan

This remarkable book introduces and describes the concept of self-organized integration of optoelectronics that makes assembly and packaging of high-speed optoelectronic systems suitable for a volume production environment. A recommended read for anyone interested in high-speed optoelectronics and interconnects.
—Dr. Alexei Glebov - OptiGrate Corp., USA

Meet the Author

Tetsuzo Yoshimura received his B.Sc. degree in physics from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, in 1974, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan, in 1976 and 1985, respectively. In 1976, he joined Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and was engaged in research on optoelectronic devices. From 1997 to 2000, he was with Fujitsu Computer Packaging Technologies, Inc., San Jose, CA, in charge of research on board/chip-level optical wiring. He is currently a professor at Tokyo University of Technology. He studies self-organized and three-dimensional optical circuits, resource-saving heterogeneous integration, and organic tailored materials grown by MLD, and also their applications to optical interconnects within computers, massive optical switching systems, solar energy conversion systems, and bio/medical photonics.
