Total coverage of photonics for students and engineers developing fiber and integrated optics systems

Elements of Photonics is a textbook and reference that treats the connection between photons and electrons. This second volume focuses specifically on photonics for fiber and integrated optics.

Topics essential to modern optical communication systems–including optical fibers, quantum electronics, optical amplifiers, lasers, and solitons, among others–are discussed in detail with abundant practical examples. A concluding chapter that applies the design skills developed throughout Volumes I and II to realistic problems in fiber optic communications makes this the ideal textbook and resource for engineers developing fiber optic communication systems as well as for students aspiring to this career.

Volume II of Elements of Photonics also includes detailed sections on the following topics:

∗ Planar optical guides for integrated optics

∗ Optical waveguides and devices for integrated optics

∗ Modes and dispersion in optical fibers

∗ Detecting light

∗ Transmitters

∗ Stationary and solitary solutions in a nonlinear medium

"...this set provides an excellent course on photonics for the student as well as for the practicing engineer?should be seriously considered by any instructor.... It certainly belongs in any college or university library...as well as any library that considers it to be technical in nature or to have a technical clientele." (E–Streams, Vol. 6, No. 2, February 2003)

"...a must for all libraries at universities and industrial laboratories..." (Optik, 2003)
