Book Description

22 Dec 1997 013103961X 978-0131039612 3
The Third Edition of this best-selling textbook continues the successful approach adopted by previous editions - It is an introduction to optoelectronics for all students, undergraduate or postgraduate, and practicing engineers requiring a treatment that is not too advanced but gives a good introduction to the quantitative aspects of the subject. The book aims to put special emphasis on the fundamental principles which underlie the operation of devices and systems. Readers will then be able to appreciate the operation of devices not covered in the book and to understand future developments within the subject. All the material in this edition has been fully updated.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to the field 10 Nov 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Honestly, I wan't five stars blown away by this book, but it deserves better than to be rated one star because someone in Korea wants the solutions manual. After reviewing the wave and quantum nature of light and some elementary solid-state physics, this book discusses the modulation of light by electrical, magnetic, and acoustic means. This theoretical background is used to motivate the next chapter, which covers display devices like LCDs. The next two chapters cover the basic theory of lasers and some of their non-communications applications like holography and machining. The next chapter covers devices to detect light, followed by a chapter on fiber optic waveguides. At this point, the authors have provided sufficient background to discuss optical communications systems. The final chapter covers the non-communcations applications of fiber such as fiber-optic sensors and coherent fiber bundles for imaging. Overall, the book is a good introductory survey of optoelectronics.
