Overview

Fundamentals of Photonics, 2nd Edition / Edition 2

Now in a new full-color edition, Fundamentals of Photonics,Second Edition is a self-contained and up-to-dateintroductory-level textbook that thoroughly surveys this rapidlyexpanding area of engineering and applied physics. Featuring alogical blend of theory and applications, coverage includesdetailed accounts of the primary theories of light, including rayoptics, wave optics, electromagnetic optics, and photon optics, aswell as the interaction of photons and atoms, and semiconductoroptics. Presented at increasing levels of complexity, preliminarysections build toward more advanced topics,
such as Fourier optics and holography, guided-wave and fiberoptics, semiconductor sources and detectors, electro-optic andacousto-optic devices, nonlinear optical devices, opticalinterconnects and switches, and optical fiber communications.

Each of the twenty-two chapters of the first edition has beenthoroughly updated. The Second Edition also featuresentirely new chapters on photonic-crystal optics (includingmultilayer and periodic media, waveguides, holey fibers, andresonators) and ultrafast optics (including femtosecond opticalpulses, ultrafast nonlinear optics, and optical solitons). Thechapters on optical interconnects and switches and optical fibercommunications have been completely rewritten to accommodatecurrent technology.

Each chapter contains summaries, highlighted equations,exercises, problems, and selected reading lists. Examples of realsystems are included to emphasize the concepts governingapplications of current interest.
