Electronic and Photonic Circuits and Devices (0780334965) cover image
Electronic and Photonic Circuits and Devices brings you a valuable overview of both the current practice of circuits and devices as well as the latest design trend toward photonics technology. In one convenient source, these selected papers reprinted from the IEEE Circuits and Devices Magazine present the important concepts behind future devices and the likely direction of optoelectronics in the next twenty-five years.

Organized around a key paper by Anthony DeMaria, Electronic and Photonic Circuits and Devices offers you a clear presentation of how research and design in this field is moving from the current use of wholly electronic circuits and devices toward a future of exclusively optical applications. You will also learn the fundamentals of new optical manufacturing and optical systems.

Electronic and Photonic Circuits and Devices is essential reading for graduate students and engineers who want to gain a strong background for understanding future developments in this dynamic area.
