9780071408752: Photonics Essentials : An Introduction with Experiments

Shedding light on the subject, this unique new book teaches photonics - electronic devices that manage light and electricity - through hands-on measurement techniques common to all photonic devices. Learn these techniques and you can characterize and understand any device and master the field. It includes discussions on Lasers, Photodiodes, LEDs, and Photoconductors. This practice-based tutorial, perfect for students and engineers looking for practical expertise rather than abstract theory, does more than explain the workings of photonic applications in common devices like lasers and photodetectors. It offers worked examples of measurement and characterization problems faced in everyday encounters with commercial photonic equipment; hands-on Photonics; all experiments can be done with commonly available devices; experiments enable solid engineering judgment; develop real-world problem-solving skills; Math for device analysis; not theory; get characterization basics that apply to all photonics; and analyze, characterize, and handle any kind of photonic device using the fundamental measurement techniques in this book.

SHEDDING LIGHT ON THE SUBJECT

This unique new book teaches photonics-- electronic devices that manage light and electricity-- through hands-on measurement techniques common to all photonic devices. Learn these techniques and you can characterize and understand any device and master the field.

Lasers, Photodiodes, LEDs, and Photoconductors

This practice-based tutorial, perfect for students and engineers looking for practical expertise rather than abstract theory, does more than explain the workings of photonic applications in common devices like lasers and photodetectors. It offers worked examples of measurement and characterization problems faced in everyday encounters with commercial photonic equipment.

HANDS-ON PHOTONICS
* All experiments can be done with commonly available devices
* Experiments enable solid engineering judgment
* Develop real-world problem-solving skills

* Get characterization basics that apply to all photonics

Analyze, characterize, and handle any kind of photonic device using the fundamental measurement techniques in this book.

About the Author:

Thomas P. Pearsall has contributed to the development of materials and devices for optical fiber telecommunications since 1973, leading the research and development of photonic technology at Bell Labs, Corning, and Thales. This textbook was developed while he was Professor of electrical engineering, materials science, and physics at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he held the Boeing-Johnson Chair. Fellow of both the IEEE and the American Physical Society, he is Associate Editor of IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer. He is the recipient of numerous honors, including the AT&T Exceptional Achievement Award. He holds or co-holds more than a dozen U.S. patents, and has contributed to many scientific journals. He is the author/editor of Quantum Structured Semiconductors (Kluwer Academic Press, 2000), Structured-Layer Semiconductors and Semimetals (Academic Press, 1990), and GaInAsP Semiconductors (Wiley, 1982).
