## Fundamentals of PhotonicsNow 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 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. |

5.2 ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES IN DIELECTRIC MEDIA The character of the

medium is embodied in the

**relation**between the polarization and magnetization

densities, 7 and M, on the one hand, and the electric and magnetic fields, £ and ...

is the lj — K dispersion

**relation**. Here, g — 2n/A is the fundamental spatial

frequency of the periodic medium. The function cos(2nK/g) is a periodic function

of K of period g = 2n/A, so that for a given u>, (7.2-17) has multiple solutions.
