Emphasizes the theory of semiconductor optoelectronic devices, demonstrating comparisons between theoretical and experimental results. Presents such important topics as semiconductor heterojunctions and band structure calculations near the band edges for bulk and quantum-well semiconductors. Details semiconductor lasers including double-heterostructure, stripe-geometry gain-guided semiconductor, distributed feedback and surface-emitting. Systematically investigates high-speed modulation of semiconductor lasers using linear and nonlinear gains. Features new subjects such as the theories on the band structures of strained semiconductors and strained quantum-well lasers. Covers key areas behind the operation of semiconductor lasers, modulators and photodetectors.
An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department

Physics of Optoelectronic Devices offers readers a broad ranging, systematic review of important topics in semiconductor electronics, physics, and electromagnetics, information essential to understanding the design and operation of optoelectronic devices.
The book begins with a detailed look at fundamentals such as Maxwell's equations and semiconductor physics, then explores a vast array of theoretical issues concerning the propagation, generation, modulation, and detection of light. It clearly demonstrates how these issues apply to the operation of various bulk and quantum-well semiconductor devices. Topics and devices discussed include:
* Heterojunctions and band structure calculations near the band edges for both bulk and quantum-well semiconductors
* Optical dielectric waveguide theory applied to semiconductor lasers, directional couplers, and electrooptic modulators
* General theory for optical gain and absorption via interband and intersubband transitions in bulk and quantum-well semiconductors
* Double heterojunction semiconductor lasers, strained quantum-well lasers, distributed-feedback lasers, and vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers
* High-speed modulation of semiconductor lasers using linear and nonlinear gains and the linewidth enhancement theory
* Franz-Keldysh effects and excitonic effects in bulk and quantum-well semiconductors, electroabsorption modulators
* Interband and intersubband photodetectors
Comprehensive, timely, and practical, Physics of Optoelectronic Devices is both a superior textbook for advanced courses in electrical engineering, applied physics, and materials science and an invaluable reference for professionals.
