A hands-on sourcebook of optical circuits-with real applications and projects. One of the hottest fields in electronic technologies today, optoelectronics is rich in possiblities and potential. This practical guide to optical circuits-including fiber optics and lasers-presents a collection of state-of-the-art experiments and projects for the student, technician, and hobbyist. Detailed, easy-to-follow discussions of optoelectronics explain the essentials of the field, as well as the future trends, in nontechnical terms. Fun and challenging projects clearly demonstrate how optical circuits work and how they can be applied in practical and efficient ways. You will save time, money, and energy with dozens of do-it-yourself projects. Protect your home with windows and door leak detectors, lightning monitors, flame sensors, and power outage and laser perimeter alarm systems; create your own solar photometers and photo flash meters; monitor your surroundings with laser seismographs and laser rangefinders; expand communications with high-speed fiber-optic data links and wireless IR speaker systems. All projects are illustrated with circuit diagrams and schematics, and accompanied by complete parts lists. And a handy appendix of suppliers tells you where to buy the parts you'll need. Whether you're on the job, troubleshooting at home, or just tinkering around, the Optoelectronics, Fiber Optics, and Laser Cookbook will give you the knowledge and skills you need to design and build time-saving, cost-efficient devices using cutting-edge optical circuitry.About the Author:
