About the Authors
  • Optoelectronic guided-wave devices are used in a wide range of optical fiber communication and optoelectronic systems. In such networks, the electrical and the optical characteristics of guided-wave devices, and the interplay between them, have a profound effect on system design and overall performance. Uniquely, this book combines both the optical and electrical behavior of guided-wave optoelectronic devices so that the interwoven properties, including interconnections to external components, are easily understood. It provides the key concepts and analytical techniques that readers can apply to current and future devices. It also presents the impact of material properties on guided-wave devices, and emphasizes the importance of time-dependent interactions between electrical and optical signals. This is an ideal reference for graduate students and researchers in electrical engineering and applied physics departments, as well as practitioners in the optoelectronics industry.

    • Uniquely combines both the optical and electrical properties of guided-wave optoelectronic devices
    • Emphasizes fundamental concepts and analytical techniques, rather than a comprehensive coverage of different devices, so readers can apply them to all current, and even future, devices
    • Discusses important properties for different types of application, such as analog or digital links
