About this book


This book focuses on the basic topics of modelling and measurement of photonic devices and discusses the most modern tools for simulation and experimentaion available to engi- neers and physicists. - Presents and compares powerful methods for numerical modelling of photonic waveguide structures and for waveguide characterisation. - Explains extensively how to model distributed feedback (DFB) lasers, the key optical source for advanced communications systems, and how to experimentally determine accurately their main characteristics. - Investigates the potential of non-linear properties of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) for fibre communications through detailed theoretical and experimental examination of the four wave mixing (FWM) effect. - Provides extensive referencing covering the latest reresearch results.
