Diode Lasers and Photonic Integrated Circuits, Second Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of optical communication technology, its principles and theory, treating students as well as experienced engineers to an in-depth exploration of this field. Diode lasers are still of significant importance in the areas of optical communication, storage, and sensing. Using the the same well received theoretical foundations of the first edition, the Second Edition now introduces timely updates in the technology and in focus of the book. After 15 years of development in the field, this book will offer brand new and updated material on GaN-based and quantum-dot lasers, photonic IC technology, detectors, modulators and SOAs, DVDs and storage, eye diagrams and BER concepts, and DFB lasers. Appendices will also be expanded to include quantum-dot issues and more on the relation between spontaneous emission and gain.

About the author (2012)

Larry A. Coldren is the Fred Kavli Professor ofOptoelectronics and Sensors at the University of California, SantaBarbara. He has authored or coauthored over a thousand journal andconference papers, seven book chapters, and a textbook, and hasbeen issued sixty-three patents. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, OSA,and IEE, the recipient of the 2004 John Tyndall and 2009 AronKressel Awards, and a member of the National Academy ofEngineering.

Scott W. Corzine obtained his PhD from the University ofCalifornia, Santa Barbara, Department of Electrical and ComputerEngineering, for his work on vertical-cavity surface-emittinglasers (VCSELs). He worked for ten years at HP/Agilent Laboratoriesin Palo Alto, California, on VCSELs, externally modulated lasers,and quantum cascade lasers. He is currently with Infinera inSunnyvale, California, working on photonic integrated circuits.

Milan L. Mashanovitch obtained his PhD in the field ofphotonic integrated circuits at the University of California, SantaBarbara (UCSB), in 2004. He has since been with UCSB as a scientistworking on tunable photonic integrated circuits and as an adjunctprofessor, and with Freedom Photonics LLC, Santa Barbara, which hecofounded in 2005, working on photonic integrated circuits.
