Photonics Modeling and Design delivers a concise introduction to the modeling and design of photonic devices. Assuming a general knowledge of photonics and the operating principles of fibre and semiconductor lasers, this book:
Describes the analysis of the light propagation in dielectric media
Discusses heat diffusion and carrier transport
Applies the presented theory to develop fibre and semiconductor laser models
Addresses the propagation of short optical pulses in optical fibres
Puts all modeling into practical context with examples of devices currently in development or on the market
Providing hands-on guidance in the form of MATLAB® scripts, tips, and other downloadable content, Photonics Modeling and Design is written for students and professionals interested in modeling photonic devices either for gaining a deeper understanding of the operation or to optimize the design.
