Essentials of Photonics, Second Edition
The importance of photonics in science and engineering is widely recognized
and will continue to increase through the foreseeable future. In particular,
applications in telecommunications, medicine, astronomy, industrial sensing,
optical computing and signal processing continue to become more diverse.
Essentials of Photonics, Second Edition describes the entire range of photonic
principles and techniques in detail. The book presents a new approach that concentrates
on the physical principles, demonstrating their interdependence, and developing
them to explain more complex phenomena. It gives insight into the underlying
physical processes in a way that is readable and easy to follow, as well as
Written by an author with many years of experience in teaching and research,
this book includes a detailed treatment of lasers, waveguides (including optical
fibres), modulators, detectors, non-linear optics and optical signal processing.
This new edition is brought up-to-date with additional sections on photonic
crystal fibres, distributed optical-fibre sensing, and the latest developments
in optical-fibre communications.
