Integrated Optics explains the subject of optoelectronic devices and their use in integrated optics and fiber optic systems. The approach taken is to emphasize the physics of how devices work and how they can be (and have been) used in various applications as the field of optoelectronics has progressed from microphotonics to naphotonics. Illustrations and references from technical journals have been used to demonstrate the relevance of the theory to currently important topics in industry. By reading this book, scientists, engineers, students and engineering managers can obtain an overall view of the theory and the most recent techlogy in Integrated Optics.
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.
