Editorial Reviews

Review

This book covers extensively all the new technology regarding polymer optical fibers as well as silica-based optical glass fibers…the writing style is excellent…
- Un-Chul Paek, Chaired Professor of Information and Communications, Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), Korea

This book presents a lucid narrative on a broad range of topics pertaining to fundamental physics issues that underlie the foundations of fiber optics, characterization techniques, and many important materials processing protocols… The incredible breadth of topics discussed goes well beyond the typical book on fibers, and covers new groundbreaking areas such as smart photomechanical materials and fiber-based switching devices. I highly recommend this book as an excellent reference, a resource to students studying fiber optics and to seasoned experts who will enjoy the fresh approach to old topics…
- David Welker, President, Paradigm Optics, Vancouver

…Comprehensive, well written, original, and both broad and deep in scope… Knowing [Dr. Kuzyk] as I do, the high quality and superb exposition were a given... I'm certain the upcoming generation of scientists, as well as experienced practitioners of polymer fiber optics will appreciate this book for years to come…

Format: Hardcover
My field is not closely related to fiber optics, however, knowing Prof. Mark Kuzyk and his research standards, and working closely with him on several exciting projects, I absolutely have no doubt that this book, Polymer Fiber Optics, just like the previous one, characterization techniques and tabulations for organic nonlinear optical materials, is a great resource for the scientists and engineers in this field, who are interested to understand the underlying concepts and learn about practical applications.
