Photonics is extensively revised and updated to keep pace with this unprecedented development.
Due to its central role in modern communications technologies, photonicsor optical electronics-has evolved dynamically over the last ten years.Now more tailored to optical communication, the sixth edition integrates material on generating and manipulating optical radiation and designing photonic components for the transmission of information. It also presents a broader theoretical underpinning and more explanations of mathematical derivations than the previous edition.The text describes the basic physics and principles of operation of major photonic components in optical communications and electronics. These components include optical resonators, various lasers, waveguides, optical fibers, gratings, and photonic crystals. photonics , Sixth Edition, also covers the transmission, modulation, amplification, and detection of optical beams in optical networks, as well as nonlinear optical effects in fibers. It assumes a background in electromagnetic theory, Maxwell's equations, and electromagnetic wave propagation. It includes numerous examples throughout.
1. The introduction of Strokes parameters and the Poin care sphere for the representation of polarization states in birefringent optical networks
2. The use of Fermat's principle for the derivation of rays, beam propagation, and the Fresnel diffraction integral
3. The use of Matrix methods for treating wave propagation in coupled resonator optical waveguides (CROWs)
4. Matrix treatment of multi cavity etalons and multilayer structures
5. Matrix treatment of mode coupling and super modes in mode-locked lasers
6. Chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion(PMD) in fibers, and their compensation
7. Nonlinear optical effects in fibers: self phase modulation, cross-phase modulation, stimulated Brillouin scattering(SBS) and stimulated Raman scattering(SRS) in fibers, optical four-wave mixing, and spectral reversal (phase conjugation) in fibers
8. Electro absorption and waveguide electro-optic Mach-Zehnder modulators
9. Periodic layered media, fiber Bragg gratings and photonic crystals, and Bragg reflection waveguides
10. Optical amplifiers: semiconductor optical amplifiers, erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, and Raman amplifiers
