Description
In the exciting field of optoelectronics, most new frontiers are explored first through the development of photodetectors. This book introduces photodetectors step-by-step, covering every photodetector of practical importance throughout the entire spectral range from UV to far IR -- all with a minimum of mathematics.

Leading researcher Donati Silvano begins with classic photoemissive devices, photocathodes and vacuum phototubes; then introduces the theory and applications of photomultipliers. Silvano presents in-depth coverage of semiconductor photodetectors and related devices, including photodiodes, avalanche devices, phototransistors, photoconductors, and solar cells. Infrared techniques and thermal detectors for non-contact temperature measurements and thermal-image pickup are also covered in detail. The book covers state-of-the-art techniques in coherent detection and photodetection; image-sensing devices such as intensified image tubes and CCDs; and much more. For each device, Silvano presents critical guidance on operation, performance parameters, sensitivity limits, special features -- and in most cases, application circuits with schematic details and design hints.
