About this title
Diode Lasers and Photonic Integrated Circuits, Second Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of optical communication technology, its principles and theory, treating students as well as experienced engineers to an in-depth exploration of this field. Diode lasers are still of significant importance in the areas of optical communication, storage, and sensing. Using the the same well received theoretical foundations of the first edition, the Second Edition now introduces timely updates in the technology and in focus of the book. After 15 years of development in the field, this book will offer brand new and updated material on GaN-based and quantum-dot lasers, photonic IC technology, detectors, modulators and SOAs, DVDs and storage, eye diagrams and BER concepts, and DFB lasers. Appendices will also be expanded to include quantum-dot issues and more on the relation between spontaneous emission and gain.From the Inside Flap:
This welcome addition to the Wiley Series in Microwave and Optical Engineering is devoted to diode lasers and their use in many fascinating applications. Owing to their small size and high reliability, their coherent output, and amazing useful life of hundreds of years, diode lasers continue to appear in new applications in local area data communications and telecommunication networks, as well as in consumer products. Diode Lasers and Photonic Integrated Circuits provides a fresh look at this fast-growing technology. Written specifically as an engineering text, it initially builds upon practical and elementary aspects as a preparation for more complex physical problems treated in later chapters. To treat complex cavity designs, the transmission matrix approach is emphasized because it is especially relevant to the widespread use of computers, as well as the rise of vertical-cavity lasers. Several chapters are devoted to gaining a basic working knowledge of diode lasers before tackling the details of material gain and laser dynamics. The book provides problem-solving opportunities on real diode lasers before tackling the mathematical techniques for lateral waveguide analysis. Once operational matters are fully explored, Diode Lasers and Photonic Integrated Circuits proceeds to cover the electromagnetic wave aspects of diode lasers and related photonic circuits, which are crucial to the understanding of the more advanced types of devices used in modern communication links and networks. Throughout, the material is supplemented with extensive appendices, addressing readers of varied backgrounds, and providing both review material and details of advanced topics. What emerges is a comprehensive, self-contained treatment of diode lasers and photonic integrated circuits that makes this an ideal textbook for a one-year course at either the senior or graduate level. This book is also an excellent professional reference for experienced engineers and researchers in microwave and optoelectronics technology.
