Fundamentals of Photonics
Now in a new full-color edition, Fundamentals of Photonics, Second Edition is a self-contained and up-to-date introductory-level textbook that thoroughly surveys this rapidly expanding area of engineering and applied physics. Featuring a logical blend of theory and applications, coverage includes detailed accounts of the primary theories of light, including ray optics, wave optics, electromagnetic optics, and photon optics, as well as the interaction of photons and atoms, and semiconductor optics. Presented at increasing levels of complexity, preliminary sections build toward more advanced topics,
such as Fourier optics and holography, guided-wave and fiber optics, semiconductor sources and detectors, electro-optic and acousto-optic devices, nonlinear optical devices, optical interconnects and switches, and optical fiber communications.
Each of the twenty-two chapters of the first edition has been thoroughly updated. The Second Edition also features entirely new chapters on photonic-crystal optics (including multilayer and periodic media, waveguides, holey fibers, and resonators) and ultrafast optics (including femtosecond optical pulses, ultrafast nonlinear optics, and optical solitons). The chapters on optical interconnects and switches and optical fiber communications have been completely rewritten to accommodate current technology.
Each chapter contains summaries, highlighted equations, exercises, problems, and selected reading lists. Examples of real systems are included to emphasize the concepts governing applications of current interest.

respectively, are represented by a column matrix of dimension 2, and similarly for
plane 2. These two column matrices are related by the matrix equation (7.1-1)
The matrix M, whose elements are A, B, C, and D, is called the wave-transfer ...
therefore draws on both the wave-transfer and scattering matrix approaches: we
use the handy multiplication formula of the M matrices and then convert to the S
matrix to determine the overall transmittance and reflectance of the cascaded ...
Thus, the modes of the system are the eigenvectors Xg of the matrix M. and the
scalars A, are the corresponding eigenvalues, as determined by solving the
algebraic equation det(M — Al) = 0, where I is the identity matrix. There are N
