Professor Hunsperger's "Integrated Optics" is comprehensive enough for use both as a classroom text (practice problems are included) and as a reference work. All chapters have been revised and updated in this third edition and a new chapter on quantum well devices has been added. The book offers detailed descriptions of the phenomena, devices and technology used in optical integrated circuits and their relationships to fibre optics are described. The trend in telecommunications toward the use of single mode systems operating at the longer wavelengths of 1.3 and 1.55m is explained, using illustrations of recently developed devices and systems. Broader coverage of GaInAsP devices and optical integrated circuits is provided and the emerging new techniques of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and metalorganic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) are described. A discussion of the development of hybrid optical integrated circuits in lithium niobate is also included. This textbook on optics, electrical engineering and physics is intended for students and researchers.

Integrated Optics: Theory and Technology explains the subject of optoelectronic devices and their use in integrated optics and fiber optic systems. The text emphasizes the physics of how devices work and how they can be used in various applications. Mathematical derivations and the development of design equations are provided where necessary to explain phenomena and engineering principles, but a strong effort has been made to avoid obscuring important concepts with mathematical details. Illustrations and references from technical journals have been used to demonstrate the relevance of the theory to currently important topics in industry.
This sixth edition of Integrated Optics: Theory and Technology includes updates and revisions in all chapters, as well as a completely new chapter on nanophotonics. Problems are included at the end of each chapter to develop students' knowledge. Scientists, engineers, students and engineering managers can utilize this book to obtain an overall view of the theory and the most recent technology in integrated optics.About the Author:
The author has been working in the field of optoelectronics for over 40 years, first in industry (Hughes Research Laboratories, Malibu, CA) and later as a professor at the University of Delaware. In 1995, Dr. Hunsperger was made a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in recognition of his work in the field.
