About this book


'Integrated Silicon Optoelectronics'assembles optoelectronics and microelectronics. The book concentrates on silicon as the major basis of modern semiconductor devices and circuits. Starting from the basics of optical emission and absorption and from the device physics of photodetectors, the aspects of the integration of photodetectors in modern bipolar, CMOS, and BiCMOS technologies are discussed. Detailed descriptions of fabrication technologies and applications of optoelectronic integrated circuits are included. The book, furthermore, contains a review of the state of research on eagerly expected silicon light emitters. In order to cover the topic of the book comprehensively, integrated waveguides, gratings, and optoelectronic power devices are included in addition. Numerous elaborate illustrations promote an easy comprehension. 'Integrated Silicon Optoelectronics'will be of value to engineers, physicists, and scientists in industry and at universities. The book is also recommendable for graduate students specializing on microelectronics or optoelectronics.
