Optoelectronics and Photonics: Principles and Practices

Front Cover
Prentice Hall, Jan 1, 2001 - Technology & Engineering - 340 pages

This book takes a fresh look at the last three decades and enormous developments in the new electo-optic devices and associated materials. General Treatment and various proofs are at a semiquantitative level without going into detailed physics. Contains numerous worked examples and solved problems. Chapter topics include wave nature of light, dielectric waveguides and optical fibers, semiconductor science and light emitting diodes, photodetectors, photovoltaic devices, and polarization and modulation of light. For the study of optoelectronics by electrical engineers.
