An essential introduction to the powerful new developments in optoelectronics

Tunable laser diodes, characterized by their unique ability to "tune in"to different wavelengths, thus significantly improving the efficiency of the switch, are rapidly becoming key components for advanced optical communication. Tunable Laser Diodes and Related Optical Sources, Second Edition is a much-needed single reference covering the range of optical networks and the components they require, with emphasis on tunable lasers. Written by respected experts in this groundbreaking technology, this resource covers fundamentals not only of tunable laser diodes, but also modern laser diodes in general, from theory to applications.

Highlights include:

  • Basic properties of semiconductor lasers
  • Essential properties for single-mode laser diodes
  • Principles, design and practice of tunable laser diodes
  • Optical components related to tunable lasers and non-semiconductor tunable lasers
  • Application areas like optical communication, radar, environmental sensing, reflectometry, and circuit analysis

Designed for engineers developing tunable lasers for optical networks, as well as graduate students enrolled in the optical engineering curriculum, Tunable Laser Diodes and Related Optical Sources, Second Edition promises to be the definitive resource on this groundbreaking optoelectronics technology.
