  • Photonic Crystals: Towards Nanoscale Photonic Devices by Jean-Michel Lourtioz, Henri Benisty, Vincent Berger,

    By Jean-Michel Lourtioz, Henri Benisty, Vincent Berger, Jean-Michel Gerard, Daniel Maystre, Alexei Tchelnokov, Pierre de Fornel, Dominique Pagnoux

    Like the periodical crystalline capability in solid-state crystals determines their houses for the conduction of electrons, the periodical structuring of photonic crystals ends up in envisioning the opportunity of reaching a keep watch over of the photon flux in dielectric and steel fabrics. using photonic crystals as a cage for storing, filtering or guiding mild on the wavelength scale hence paves easy methods to the realisation of optical and optoelectronic units with final houses and dimensions. this could give a contribution towards assembly the calls for for a better miniaturisation that the processing of an ever expanding variety of facts requires.Photonic Crystals intends to supply scholars and researchers from various fields with the theoretical history wanted for modelling photonic crystals and their optical houses, whereas even as providing the massive number of units, from optics to microwaves, the place photonic crystals have discovered functions. As such, it goals at construction bridges among optics, electromagnetism and solid-state physics. This booklet used to be written through six experts of nanophotonics, and used to be coordinated via Jean-Michel Lourtioz, head of the Institut d'Electronique Fondamentale in Orsay and coordinator of the French learn community in Nanophotonics.

  • Optical Waveguides. From Theory to Applied Technologies by María L. Calvo, Vasudevan Lakshminarayanan

    By María L. Calvo, Vasudevan Lakshminarayanan

    Even supposing the idea and rules of optical waveguides were proven for greater than a century, the applied sciences have in simple terms been learned in fresh a long time. Optical Waveguides: From conception to utilized applied sciences combines the main suitable features of waveguide conception with the examine of present exact waveguiding applied sciences, particularly, photonic units, telecommunication functions, and biomedical optics.

    With self-contained chapters written by way of recognized experts, the e-book gains either basics and functions. the 1st 3 chapters research the theoretical foundations and bases of planar optical waveguides in addition to severe optical houses similar to birefringence and nonlinear optical phenomena. the subsequent numerous chapters specialize in modern waveguiding applied sciences that come with photonic units and telecommunications. The booklet concludes with discussions on extra technological purposes, together with biomedical optical waveguides and the opportunity of neutron waveguides.

    As optical waveguides play an expanding half in sleek expertise, photonics turns into to the twenty first century what electronics have been to the 20 th century. delivering either novel insights for skilled pros and introductory fabric for newcomers, this publication allows a greater realizing of the hot details era—the photonics century.
