Fundamentals of Photonics; 3rd Edition; (PDF) is a self-contained and up-to-date introductory-level textbook that comprehensively surveys this rapidly expanding area of engineering and applied physics. Featuring a blend of theory and applications; coverage covers detailed accounts of the primary theories of light; including ray optics; electromagnetic optics; wave optics; and photon optics; as well as the interaction of light and matter. Presented at increasing levels of complexity; preliminary sections build toward more advanced topics like Fourier optics and holography; lasers; LEDs; photonic-crystal optics; guided-wave and fiber optics; nonlinear optical devices; acousto-optic and electro-optic devices; ultrafast optics; optical interconnects and switches; and optical fiber communications. The 3rd edition features an entirely new chapter on the optics of metals and plasmonic devices. Every chapter contains highlighted equations; problems; exercises; summaries; and selected reading lists. Examples of real systems are included to highlight the concepts governing applications of current interest. Each of the twenty-four chapters of the second edition has been completely updated.
