Optical Science and Engineering #110: Applied Microphotonics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the limits of electrical performance come within sight, photons are poised to take over for the electron. But the search continues for the materials, topologies, and fabrication technologies capable of producing photonic devices at a reasonable speed and cost. Taking a fundamentallook at the development of photonic technology from the macro- to the microscale, Applied Microphotonics introduces the major principles and technologies underlying the field.

Following an overview of historical and commercial driving forces, the authors briefly review the underlying physics, emphasizing the practical and design implications for photonic systems. This general discussion lays the foundation for the remainder of the book, where the authors first introduce the photonic node and then discuss each subsystem in detail, including transmitters, couplers and switches, multiplexers and demultiplexers, receivers, amplifiers, and compensators. The following chapters explore new technologies such as photonic band gap structures, materials and fabrication processes, integration methodologies, and advanced devices such as photonic computers. The book concludes with a brief introduction to quantum photonics and a forward look at potential directions of photonics.

Applied Microphotonics encapsulates the recent push toward all-optical networks and devices with an applications-oriented perspective. It is ideal for newcomers to the field as well as anyone curious to know how photonic technology can benefit their own field.

Book News Annotation:

The electron will one day make way for the photon, and researchers are struggling to find the materials, topologies, and fabrication technologies at optimum speed and minimum cost. The authors, all practitioners, describe the historical perspective behind the technology, including photonic computing, photonic-band-gap structures and quantum photonics, technology growth and the market push, fundamentals of interactions of light with matter, the photonic node, transmitters, couplers and switches, multiplexers, receivers, amplifiers and compensators, new technologies, materials, fabrication and integration, advanced microphotonic devices, quantum photonic systems and future systems and their applications. Illustrations are clear and helpful and the authors include references for further reading.
