Editorial Reviews


"So who will buy this book? Well, our PhD students for a start. I've told them all to buy their own copy; at less than L40 for more than 700 pages it's an absolute snip. Also, in the three weeks I've had my free copy I've consulted it four times, all to fruitful effect, in discussions with colleagues, so I'd suggest they get their own as well. As a reference text for course writers it could be invaluable, and device researchers writing papers, theses, proposals or reports may well wear it out completely." C. C. Phillips, Contemporary Physics

Book Description

Optoelectronics is a practical and self-contained graduate-level textbook on the subject, which will be of great value to both students and practising engineers. Sophisticated concepts are introduced in a practical and coherent way, including such topics as quantum mechanics of electron-photon interaction, quantisation of the electro-magnetic field and semiconductor properties. The book builds on these concepts to describe the physics, properties and performances of the main optoelectronic devices, and concludes by presenting the latest devices, including quantum well infrared photodetectors, quantum cascade lasers and optical frequency converters.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Steven J. Wojtczuk on November 10, 2005
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Broad coverage, but goes into enough detail to show you how to

calculate things like the effects of compressive or tensile strain on the energy levels in quantum wells or how to get the emission width of an LED. Readable and well laid out. A good alternative at a similar level to Yariv's Modern Optical Electronics or Chuang's Physics of Optoelectronic Devices and slightly higher than Saleh's Fundamentals of Photonics or Bhattacharya's Semiconductor Optoelectronics (I think all of above are good textbooks). Not as detailed in lasers as Coldren/Corzine's Diode Laser..., or Schubert's LED book, but the coverage is broader. The authors stick in the odd Mathematica program lines on occasion, which I find annoying in the text but are a minor defect (I think readers can develop their own models in Mathematica, MathCad, or whatever). Overall a good buy.
