Photodetectors and Fiber Optics is an outgrowth of the recently published 10-volume set Handbook of Advanced Electronic and Photonic Materials and Devices. The objective of this book is to present a highly coherent coverage of photodetectors and optical fibers.
This book overs a broad spectrum of photodetectors, including types of materials, their fabrication, physical properties, and industrial applications. Many industries around the world are engaged in developing fiber optics technology for the new millennium. The applications of photodetectors in fiber optics and the role of optical fibers in present communication technology are extensively discussed.

Both photodetectors and fiber optics represent very exciting areas of research that will play an important role in future communication technology. Photodetectors and Fiber Optics presents highly coherent coverage of photodetectors and optical fibers. The topics covered in this book include semiconductor photoconductors for visible to far-infrared detection, resonant cavity enhanced photodetectors, gallium arsenide based infrared detectors, bulk semiconductors for infrared applications. Photodetectors have been extensively used for applications in optical fibers. The role of photodetectors for optical fiber communications has been discussed. The topics include germanium-dioxide-based glasses as optical sensors materials and high-bandwidth optical networks and communication. Both photodetectors and fiber optics represent very exciting areas of research that will play an important role in future communication technology. This book is an invaluable resource for scientists and upper level graduate students working in solid state physics, optical engineering and photophysics, fiber optics, electrical and electronic engineering, materials science, data storage, information technology and semiconductor industries.About the Author:
