Short description
Optical communication technology, like diode lasers used in optical storage devices, is vital to the optoelectronics industry. Since the first edition, Diode Lasers and Photonic Integrated Circuits presents up-to-date information on optical communication technology principles and theories. By expanding the appendices, at least twenty-five percent of new information is added on topics like quantum-dot issues. As the only book on diode lasers, this resource, which includes examples, end-of-the-chapter homework problems, and a solution manual, is essential for students and engineers in comprehending optical communication technology.
