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 fabrication (fab´rikā´shn),
