Photonic Devices for Telecommunications

This book is subdivided into three main Parts. The common spirit in these parts is to provide, at the beginning of each, a comprehensive introduction into the subject treated, followed by specific aspects pertaining to the modelling and/or measuring particularities arlsmg from the investigation of photonic devices for telecommunications. Some of the devices treated here can be considered as widely known and well established. Others are rather new and their potential for applications is not yet fully exploited. The methods to model and measure photonic in this book and the comparison of results obtained devices and structures outlined by applying such methods are likely to interest both the engineer investigating the of a device in a system and the engineer looking for new ways to explore behaviour the possibilities offered by emerging devices. Many authors have contributed to this book. There are two main reasons for this. in photonic device research, modelling First, the book addresses two broad fields and measurements, for which a vast knowledge exists in many research groups that was not integrated in a book before. Second, a significant number of laboratories decided to closely co-operate in order to gain additional information on merits and drawbacks of their own methods for simulation and experimentation of devices as compared to the methods used by their colleagues in other laboratories. The outcome are new aspects and approaches that would not have been investigated in the absence of a framework for a co-operative programme.

Automated design of photonic devices

This automation of photonic design has the potential to completely revolutionize photonics by pushing the boundaries of photonic devices, and also by simply reducing the time and effort it takes to design devices and systems.

Automated design of photonic devices

Integrated photonic devices are poised to play a key role in a wide variety of applications, ranging from optical interconnects and sensors to quantum computing. Design methods for photonics, however, lag far behind other areas such as digital electronics and aerospace vehicles. Photonic devices are largely designed by hand using a combination of semi-analytic theory and brute-force parameter sweeps, and as a result only a small library of devices is currently known. In this dissertion, I discuss our recent efforts to automate the design of photonic devices. In particular, we have developed an automated design method that explores the full design space of fabricable devices. This has allowed us to design devices with previously unattainable functionalities, performance, fabrication robustness, and compact footprints. Using this method, we designed, fabricated, and experimentally demonstrated a wide variety of passive silicon photonics devices. These include a wavelength splitting grating coupler, compact waveguide-coupled wavelength splitters, and a 3-way power splitter. The design methods we have introduced have the potential to both revolutionize the integrated photonics industry, and open new avenues of research for photonics.

Contemporary Developments in High Frequency Photonic Devices

Microwave photonics and information optics provide high bandwidth and precision along with ultrafast speed at a low cost. In order to reduce noise at the communication trans-receivers, scattering in the devices needs to be decreased, which can be achieved by replacing optoelectronic devices with photonic devices because in the latter only photons propagate electromagnetic waves. Contemporary Developments in High-Frequency Photonic Devices is a crucial research book that examines high-frequency photonics and their applications in communication engineering. Featuring coverage on a wide range of topics such as metamaterials, optoelectronic devices, and plasmonics, this book is excellent for students, researchers, engineers, and professionals.

Guided Wave Optics and Photonic Devices

Guided Wave Optics and Photonic Devices introduces readers to a broad cross-section of topics in this area, from the basics of guided wave optics and nonlinear optics to biophotonics. The book is inspired by and expands on lectures delivered by distinguished speakers at a three-week school on guided wave optics and devices organized at the CSIR-Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute in Kolkata in 2011. An Introduction to Guided Wave Optics and Photonic Devices: Principles, Applications, and Future Directions The book discusses the concept of modes in a guided medium from first principles, emphasizing the importance of dispersion properties in optical fibers. It describes fabrication and characterization techniques of rare-earth-doped optical fibers for amplifiers and lasers, with an eye to future applications. Avoiding complex mathematical formalism, it also presents the basic theory and operational principles of fiber amplifiers and lasers. The book examines techniques for writing fiber Bragg gratings, which are of particular interest for smart sensing applications. A chapter focuses on the fundamental principles of Fourier optics and its implementation in guided wave optics. In addition, the book explains the critical phenomena of soliton dynamics and supercontinuum generation in photonic crystal fiber, including its fabrication process and characteristics. It also looks at plasmonics in guided media and nonlinearity in stratified media—both key areas for future research. The last chapter explores the importance of lasers in biophotonic applications. Written by experts engaged in teaching, research, and development in optics and photonics, this reference brings together fundamentals and recent advances in one volume. It offers a valuable overview of the field for students and researchers alike and identifies directions for future research in guided wave and photonic device technology.
