Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Introduces the optoelectronic fundamentals needed to understand fiber optic (and related) devices and systems.The book begins with a basic introduction to essential concepts of optics and solid state physics, and the fundamentals of light modulation. Next, it introduces display devices, lasers, photodetectors, fiber optic waveguides, and other optoelectronic devices. There is detailed coverage of optical communications systems using analog, ASK, FSK and PSK modulation; wavelength division multiplexing, and other important technologies. Finally, the book reviews noncommunication applications of fiber optics.All engineers, physicists, students and others interested in optoelectronics.

Honestly, I wan't five stars blown away by this book, but it deserves better than to be rated one star because someone in Korea wants the solutions manual. After reviewing the wave and quantum nature of light and some elementary solid-state physics, this book discusses the modulation of light by electrical, magnetic, and acoustic means. This theoretical background is used to motivate the next chapter, which covers display devices like LCDs. The next two chapters cover the basic theory of lasers and some of their non-communications applications like holography and machining. The next chapter covers devices to detect light, followed by a chapter on fiber optic waveguides. At this point, the authors have provided sufficient background to discuss optical communications systems. The final chapter covers the non-communcations applications of fiber such as fiber-optic sensors and coherent fiber bundles for imaging. Overall, the book is a good introductory survey of optoelectronics.
