    The third edition of this best-selling textbook continues the successful approach adopted by previous editions - It is an introduction to optoelectronics for all students, undergraduate or postgraduate, and practicing engineers requiring a treatment that is not too advanced but gives a good introduction to the quantitative aspects of the subject. The book aims to put special emphasis on the fundamental principles which underlie the operation of devices and systems. Readers will then be able to appreciate the operation of devices not covered in the book and to understand future developments within the subject. All the material in this edition has been fully updated.

    Salient Features

    Retains the introductory chapters on optics and solid-state physics.
    Increased coverage of parametric oscillation and flat-panel displays.
    Chapter on optical fibers has been updated to emphasize the increased importance of single mode fibers and very low (high bandwidth) fibers and includes a discussion of fibers manufacture and the production of long wavelength fibers.
    Introduction of topics such as wavelength division multiplexing, optical amplifiers, solutions, and coherent systems, along with a consideration of the systems which depend on these topics (including local area networks, worldwide telephone links and the Internet).
    Covers recent interest and developments in optical fibers sensors and distributed systems."
