-- Real applications, extensive opto-electronic circuit examples.
-- Covers both optical and electrical design issues.
This book walks engineers, designers and technicians step-by-step through building and optimizing opto-electronic circuits.
In Part I, the book introduces the basic theory of opto-electronics, including Maxwell's equations; photons and basic quantum theory; reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference and polarization. Among the topics covered are: Snell's Law, Fabry-Perot interferometers, and diffraction gratings. In Part II, the book introduces opto-electronic circuits, covering emitters, lenses, apertures, filters, detectors and associated electronics. Learn about photodiodes, optocouplers, phototransistors, photoconductors and other components. Understand how to build and optimize amplifier and hybrid circuits. Finally, walk through a variety of applications, including CD players and infrared data transmission. The book also covers often-neglected issues such as component placement, printed circuit board layout, and EMI shielding.
