Optical Waves in Layered MediaOptical Waves in Layered Media presents a clear picture ofthe propagation of optical waves in layered media and teaches thereader how to design and analyze optical devices using such media.Starting from the simplest case of plane wave propagation inhomogeneous media, the author introduces a new matrix method forstudying the optical properties of multilayer structures consistingof isotropic materials. He then describes propagation inanisotropic layered media and in inhomogeneous layers, guidedwaves, the coupling of modes, and the optical properties ofsuperlattices and quantum wells. Optical Waves in Layered Media bridges the gap betweentheory and practice by means of numerical examples based onreal-life situations. |
