Handbook of Silicon Photonics (Series in Optics and Optoelectronics)
Handbook of Silicon Photonics provides information about the latest developments of integrated silicon photonic circuits that are introduced through internet to increase bandwidth and to reduce power dissipation. For this high active and passive photonic devices have been developed such as waveguide, modulators, photo detectors, multiplexers and even light sources that take advantage of silicon technology.
.it has been written in so friendly and effective manner that even freshers and specialists can refer it. This book contains coherent and comprehensive overview of silicon photonics starting from fundaments to integrated systems and applications. Self contained chapters of this book cover broad view for the material and applications, fabrication, integration along with the CMOS technology.
This book starts with the review of basic properties and growth mechanism of group IV and later it covers silicon based photonic crystals and meta material. Further it has explanation for tackling with the problem of light coupling and technologies that are involved in multichannel silicon photonic devices. Even it includes information related to hybrid and heterogeneous of active materials. Even readers may know about application of silicon photonics to biology and life science.
