4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By calvinnme HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 16, 2005
"Fundamentals of Photonics" is still the definitive book on the generation of coherent light by lasers and incoherent light by sources such as light-emitting diodes, light transmission through optical devices, and the detection of light by semiconductor photodetectors even 14 years after it was first published. Unfortunately the exercises for this book are of such complexity that the book is of somewhat limited usefulness for self-study without the solutions manual. If you own "Fundamentals of Photonics" you have a real storehouse of well-presented knowledge on optoelectronics. However, if you have the solution manual as well, you have established a synergistic relationship that should really supercharge your knowledge in this area. I know I really regret misplacing my copy of the solutions manual for this book and would pay just about any price to get that copy back or any other copy.
PLEASE NOTE that after 15 years a second edition is scheduled for release in May 2006 (ISBN 0471784761) by the same publisher as the first edition. It will be 200 pages longer and feature two new chapters to cover the advances in the field of photonics: Photonic-Crystal Optics and Ultrafast Optics, so this edition of the solutions manual may not be relevant much longer.
