Encyclopedic handbook of integrated optics.
Ed. by Kenuchi Iga and Yasuo Kokabun.
CRC / Taylor & Francis
Fifty-three international academics, researchers, practitioners, and consultants contribute 59 articles covering the vast field of integrated optics, presenting its principles, history of development, design rules, representative performances, and important references. The collection includes both very brief articles providing only a definition and the principle of operation, and longer entries offering more detailed discussion of technical terms in integrated optics and covering the basic principle, mathematical equations, principle of operation, device fabrication and testing, and system applications. The text is suitable as a reference work for scientists, engineers, technology managers, academics and graduate students, and as a textbook for students. The alphabetical table of contents is supplemented by a second list grouping the entries into six main categories, to assist those using the handbook as a textbook. Illustrated throughout with b&w photographs, diagrams, and charts.
