Fundamentals of Photonics, 2 Volume Set (Wiley Series in Pure and Applied Optics) (Book Summary)

Fundamentals of Photonics A complete, thoroughly updated, full-color third edition Fundamentals of Photonics, Third Edition  is a self-contained and up-to-date introductory-level textbook that thoroughly surveys this rapidly expanding area of engineering and applied physics. Featuring a blend of theory and applications, coverage includes detailed accounts of the primary theories of light, including  ray optics, wave optics, electromagnetic optics , and  photon optics,  as well as the interaction of  light and matter . Presented at increasing levels of complexity, preliminary sections build toward more advanced topics, such as  Fourier optics and holography, photonic-crystal optics, guided-wave and fiber optics, LEDs and lasers, acousto-optic   and electro-optic devices, nonlinear optical devices, ultrafast optics, optical interconnects and switches,  and  optical fiber communications.  The third edition features an entirely new chapter on the  optics of metals and plasmonic devices . Each chapter contains highlighted equations, exercises, problems, summaries, and selected reading lists. Examples of real systems are included to emphasize the concepts governing applications of current interest. Each of the twenty-four chapters of the second edition has been thoroughly updated.
