Photonic circuitry is the first-choice technological advancement recognized by the telecommunications industry. Due to the speed, strength, and clarity of signal, photonic circuits are rapidly replacing electronic circuits in a range of applications. Applied Photonics is a state-of-the-art reference book that describes the fundamental physical concept of photonics and examines the most current information available in the photonics field. Cutting-edge developments in semiconductors, optical switches, and solitons are presented in a readable and easily understandable style, making this volume accessible, if not essential, reading for practicing engineers and scientists.
Key Features
* Introduces the concept of nonlinear interaction of photons with matters, photons, and phonons
* Covers recent developments of semiconductor lasers and detectors in the communications field
* Discusses the development of nonlinear devices, including optical amplifiers, solitons, and phase conjugators, as well as the development of photonic components, switches, interconnects, and image processing devices

"In 14 chapters the author presents the most important aspects of photonics in a truly cogent fashion and sets the record straight for numerous misconceptions....Overall, I found Applied Photonics by Yeh to be an excellent reference book. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction stating the objectives of the discussion and ends with a summary and a reference list. The references are quite recent...A comprehensive index makes the book an extremely useful reference tool.Its small size makes it ideal for a traveling companion when a photonics reference book is necessary." --OPTICAL ENGINEERING
