Description

An introduction to photonics and lasers that does not rely on complex mathematics

 

This book evolved from a series of courses developed by the author and taught in the areas of lasers and photonics. This thoroughly classroom-tested work fills a unique need for students, instructors, and industry professionals in search of an introductory-level book that covers a wide range of topics in these areas. Comparable books tend to be aimed either too high or too low, or they cover only a portion of the topics that are needed for a comprehensive treatment.

Photonics and Lasers is divided into four parts:

  • Propagation of Light
  • Generation and Detection of Light
  • Laser Light
  • Light-Based Communication

The author has ensured that complex mathematics does not become an obstacle to understanding key physical concepts. Physical arguments and explanations are clearly set forth while, at the same time, sufficient mathematical detail is provided for a quantitative understanding. As an additional aid to readers who are learning to think symbolically, some equations are expressed in words as well as symbols.

Problem sets are provided throughout the book for readers to test their knowledge and grasp of key concepts. A solutions manual is also available for instructors. Finally, the detailed bibliography leads readers to in-depth explorations of particular topics.

The book's topics, lasers and photonics, are often treated separately in other texts; however, the author skillfully demonstrates their natural synergy. Because of the combined coverage, this text can be used for a two-semester course or a one-semester course emphasizing either lasers or photonics. This is a perfect introductory textbook for both undergraduate and graduate students, additionally serving as a practical reference for engineers in telecommunications, optics, and laser electronics.

描述

這本書是一本光子學和雷射的介紹,不依賴於複雜的數學。這本書是作者根據自己開發的一系列課程而演變而來,並在雷射和光子學領域教授。這本經過充分課堂測試的作品填補了學生、教師和業界專業人士對於一本初級水平的書籍的獨特需求,該書涵蓋了這些領域的各種主題。相比之下,其他類似的書籍往往要麼過於高深,要麼過於淺顯,或者只涵蓋了部分需要全面處理的主題。

光子學和雷射分為四個部分:

1. 光的傳播
2. 光的產生和檢測
3. 雷射光
4. 基於光的通信

作者確保複雜的數學不成為理解關鍵物理概念的障礙。
