    Thin-FilmOrganicPhotonicsMolecular LayerDeposition andApplicationsTetsuzo YoshimuraTokyo University of Technology, Japan

    deals with interesting topics about a new tech-nique for highly ordered structures and high-perfor-mance optoelectronic properties of organic mole-cules .

    Atsushi Kubono, Shizuoka University, Japan

    Artificial materials with atomic/molecular-level tai-lored structures are the final goal of material anddevice scientists and engineers. Such tailoredstructures enable electron-wave function control,which will improve material performance andgenerate new photonic/electronic phenomena. This book describes how photonic/electronicproperties of thin films can be improved by precisecontrol of atomic and molecular arrangements. Itdemonstrates the prospect of the artificial materi-als with atomic/molecular-level tailored structures,featuring molecular layer deposition (MLD) andconjugated polymers with multiple quantum dots(MQDs). The author also covers related topics, such asorganic electro-optic materials, optical switches,optical circuits, a self-organized lightwave network(SOLNET), and a resource-saving heterogeneousintegration process. Some photonics/ electronicsapplications of artificial organic thin films includeoptical interconnects within boxes of computers,optical switching systems, solar energy conversionsystems, and photodynamic therapy.

    Photonics

    Essentials ofPhotonicsSecond EditionAlan RogersUniversity of Surrey, Guildford, UK

    The importance of photonics in science andengineering is widely recognized and will con-tinue to increase through the foreseeable future.In particular, applications in telecommunica-tions, medicine, astronomy, industrial sensing,optical computing, and signal processing con-tinue to become more diverse. Building on its bestselling predecessor, this sec-ond edition describes the entire range of pho-tonic principles and techniques in detail. It pres-ents a new approach that concentrates on thephysical principles, demonstrating their interde-pendence and developing them to explain morecomplex phenomena. This edition is brought upto date with additional sections on photoniccrystal fibers, distributed optical-fiber sensing,and the latest developments in optical-fibercommunications. Written by an author with many years of experi-ence in teaching and research, the book includesa detailed treatment of lasers, waveguides(including optical fibers), modulators, detectors,nonlinear optics, and optical signal processing.The text gives insight into the underlying physi-cal processes in a way that is readable, easy tofollow, and entirely self-contained.

    The Nature of LightWhat Is a Photon?Edited by

    ChandrasekharRoychoudhuriUniversity of Connecticut, Storrs, USA

    A.F. KracklauerKatherine Creath

    I would be surprised if any reader of the full vol-ume will emerge with their view entirely unmodi-fied, even if perhaps not clarified, by a careful read-ing of this volume. That is the hallmark of a signif-icant contribution to the scientific literature, andon this basis I warmly recommend it.

    Journal of Nanophotonics, October 2008

    Features

    Focuses on the unresolved debate betweenNewton and Huygens, The Nature of Light:What is a Photon?

    Explores the fundamental issues pertaining tolight that still exist today

    Photonic SignalProcessingTechniques andApplicationsLe Nguyen BinhMonash University, Clayton, Australia

    Spanning the current transitional period, thisbook addresses the merging techniques of pro-cessing and manipulating signals propagating inthe optical domain. The author demonstratesthe representation of photonic circuits using asignal flow graph technique adapted for pho-tonic domain. He describes differentiators andintegrators and their applications for the gener-ation of solitons. He then covers the applicationof solitons in optically amplified fiber transmis-sion systems.

    Optical FiberCommunicationsSystemsTheory and Practicewith MATLAB andSimulink ModelsLe Nguyen BinhMonash University, Clayton,Victoria, Australia

    Exploring advanced modulation and transmis-sion techniques of lightwave communicationsystems, this book fills the need for a text thatemphasizes practical computing models thatshed light on the behavior and dynamics of thedevices. The text presents optical communica-tion techniques and applications, employing sin-gle mode optical fibers as the transmission medi-um. With MATLAB and Simulink models thatillustrate methods, it supplies a deep under-standing of the future development of opticalsystems and networks.

    The book begins with an overview of the devel-opment of optical fiber communications tech-nology over the last three decades of the 20thcentury. It describes the optical transmitters fordirect and external modulation techniques aswell as the detection of optical signals underdirect coherent and incoherent reception.

    The author also covers lumped, doped, and dis-tributed Roman optical amplifiers with extensivemodels for the amplification of signals and struc-turing the amplifiers on the Simulink platform.He outlines a design strategy for optically ampli-fied transmission systems coupled with MATLABSimulink models, including dispersion andattenuation budget methodology and simula-tion techniques. The book concludes with cover-age of advanced modulation formats for longhaul optical fiber transmission systems withaccompanied Simulink models.
