Now, the foundation of a new full-color version of photonics, the second edition is a self-contained the latest entry-level textbook, a thorough investigation of this rapidly expanding field of engineering and applied physics. There is a logical blend of theory and applications, coverage includes detailed accounts of the main theories of light, including mutual-ray optics, wave optics, electromagnetic, optical systems, and photon optics, as well as photons and atoms role, and semiconductor optics. Increased complexity, the initial part of the building toward the more advanced topics,
Such as Fourier optics and holography, guided wave and fiber optics, semiconductor sources and detectors, electro-optic, acousto-optic devices, nonlinear optical devices, optical interconnects and switches, and optical fiber communications.
Chapter 22 of the first version has been fully updated. Second edition also uses a photonic crystal optical element (including multilayer and periodic media waveguide, porous fiber, and resonator) and ultrafast optical (including femtosecond light pulses, ultrafast nonlinear optical soliton) new chapters. Chapter optical interconnects and switches, optical fiber communications have been completely rewritten to accommodate current technology.
Each chapter contains a summary, highlighting the equations, exercises, problems, and selected reading list. Examples of real-time systems, stressed that the concept of application of the current interest rate.
