by Govind P. Agrawal
A comprehensive treatise on the components and devices of thelightwave explosionMultiple advances in lightwave technology have led to a veritableoverload of global information systems throughout the world. Giventhe sheer number and growing importance of such systems, GovindAgrawal's Lightwave Technology answers the need for a comprehensiveand up-to-date account of all major aspects of this rapidlyexpanding field.Components and Devices, the first independent volume of thistwo-volume engineering resource, is devoted to describing amultitude of today's silica- and semiconductor-based opticaldevices. Conceived and written by the foremost expert andbestselling author in the fiber optic field, the text providesdetailed, in-depth coverage of both theoretical and practicalaspects of the science, including:* Fiber optics* Passive and active fiber components* Planar waveguides* Semiconductor lasers and amplifiers* Optical modulators* Photodetectors* WDM components* Space- and time-domain switchingThe second volume, Lightwave Technology: Communication Systems,deals with the design and performance of modern transmissionsystems making use of these devices.Complete with chapter problems, a CD, and a Solutions Manual, thistitle serves as both a basic text book for students and a practicaleveryday reference for engineers and researchers in the field.
