Slow Light: Science and Applications
One of the Top Selling Physics Books according to YBP Library Services
The exotic effects of slow light have been widely observed in the laboratory.
However, current literature fails to explore the wider field of slow light in
photonic structures and optical fibers.
Reflecting recent research, Slow Light: Science and Applications presents
a comprehensive introduction to slow light and its potential applications, including
storage, switching, DOD applications, and nonlinear optics. The book covers
fundamentals of slow light in various media, including atomic media, semiconductors,
fibers, and photonic structures. Leading authorities in such diverse fields
as atomic vapor spectroscopy, fiber amplifiers, and integrated optics provide
an interdisciplinary perspective. They uncover potential applications in both
linear and nonlinear optics.
While it is impossible to account for all the captivating developments that
have occurred in the last few years, this book provides an exceptional survey
of the current state of the slow light field.
