This one-of-a-kind resource offers state-of-the-art research and developments in photonic switching and interconnects - describing a variety of systems used in optical telecommunications and computer networking and analyzing the performance of many optical components used in these systems.
Providing a balanced view with expert contributors from North America, Europe, and Japan representing both industry and academia, Photonic Switching and Interconnects examines a host of optical components, including integrated optical switches, arrays of surface-emitting lasers, two-dimensional spatial light modulators, microlenses, self-electro optic effect devices, substrate-mode devices, and wavelength switching components... analyzes photonic switching components for applications in tele-communications and computing... explains wavelength and time multiplexing techniques in the context of functional systems... presents ultrafast all-optical switching as a way to solve electronic bottlenecks... discusses free-space holographic grating interconnects and substrate-mode diffractive optical interconnects... shows how both free-space and guided wave optical interconnects can play a major role in high-performance systems... and more!
Generously referenced and illustrated, Photonic Switching and Interconnects is an incomparable guide for optical, electrical and electronics, laser, communications, and design engineers, and graduate-level students in these disciplines.
