Download e-book for iPad: Broadband Optical Modulators: Science, Technology, and by Antao Chen,Edmond Murphy

By Antao Chen,Edmond Murphy

"…provides the whole, interesting tale of optical modulators. … a complete evaluation, from the elemental technology to the fabric and processing expertise to the optimized equipment layout to the multitude of purposes for which broadband optical modulators carry nice worth. … particularly worthwhile for my part is that the authors are across the world recognized researchers, builders, and structures people who find themselves specialists of their box, writing now, with the viewpoint that point deals, approximately their groundbreaking paintings. "


—Dr. Rodney C. Alferness, Senior vp of Optical Networking study at Lucent applied sciences’ Bell Labs



Considered the main finished ebook but released in this severe topic, Broadband Optical Modulators: technology, know-how, and Applications deals a very wide-ranging but in-depth assessment of the state-of-the-art within the layout and use of optical modulators. A compilation of specialist insights, this publication covers primary and useful features, from fabrics to platforms, addressing old and more moderen developments.


Coverage includes:




  • Optical and electro-optic homes of conventional unmarried crystalline lithium niobate, silicon, and III-V compound semiconductors, in addition to rising electro-optic polymers and natural nonlinear optic crystals



  • Discussion of things vital to modulator layout, fabrication, and performance



  • Fundamental issues, akin to electro-optic influence in nonlinear optic crystals and semiconductors



Leaders within the box created this precious reference for clinical researchers all for high-speed gadget examine and improvement, specifically within the components of optical transmitters and optical modulators for fiber-optics communique platforms. assisting readers grasp optical modulation options, this e-book might be beneficial to engineers (system/subsystem designers, product builders, and technical and undertaking managers) and different pros within the telecommunications and safety industries. It bargains the audience—which comprises graduate students—an in-depth figuring out of the recent modulator architectures and applied sciences now on hand, in addition to the strengths, weaknesses, merits, and trade-offs linked to each one.
