By María L. Calvo, Vasudevan Lakshminarayanan

Even supposing the idea and rules of optical waveguides were confirmed for greater than a century, the applied sciences have simply been discovered in contemporary a long time. Optical Waveguides: From conception to utilized applied sciences combines the main proper points of waveguide thought with the learn of present special waveguiding applied sciences, particularly, photonic units, telecommunication purposes, and biomedical optics.

With self-contained chapters written by way of famous experts, the e-book positive aspects either basics and purposes. the 1st 3 chapters study the theoretical foundations and bases of planar optical waveguides in addition to serious optical homes corresponding to birefringence and nonlinear optical phenomena. the following numerous chapters specialize in modern waveguiding applied sciences that come with photonic units and telecommunications. The e-book concludes with discussions on extra technological functions, together with biomedical optical waveguides and the potential for neutron waveguides.

As optical waveguides play an expanding half in glossy know-how, photonics becomes to the twenty first century what electronics have been to the twentieth century. providing either novel insights for skilled pros and introductory fabric for newbies, this booklet enables a greater figuring out of the recent info era—the photonics century.

Nanotechnology-Enabled Sensors

Nanotechnology presents us with instruments to create practical fabrics, units, and platforms by means of controlling fabrics on the atomic and molecular scales through utilising novel houses and phenomena. since so much chemical and organic sensors, in addition to many actual sensors, depend upon interactions taking place in the nanoscale diversity, the effect that nanotechnology may have at the sensor international is critical.

Optical Generation and Control of Quantum Coherence in Semiconductor Nanostructures

The extraordinary regulate of coherence that may be exercised in quantum optics of atoms and molecules has inspired expanding efforts in extending it to solid-state platforms. One motivation to take advantage of the coherent phenomena comes from the emergence of the quantum info paradigm, despite the fact that many extra capability machine purposes starting from novel lasers to spintronics are all certain up with concerns in coherence.

Foundations of Nanomechanics: From Solid-State Theory to Device Applications

This article presents an creation, on the point of a complicated pupil in engineering or physics, to the sector of nanomechanics and nanomechanical units. It presents a unified dialogue of sturdy mechanics, with notation in line with glossy conference. A dialogue of electric transducer functions is integrated, masking such issues as piezoresistance and piezoelecticity.

Transport Properties of Molecular Junctions

A accomplished evaluate of the actual mechanisms that keep watch over electron delivery and the features of metal-molecule-metal (MMM) junctions. so far as attainable, equipment and formalisms awarded somewhere else to research electron delivery via molecules are refrained from. This identify introduces easy concepts--a description of the electron shipping via molecular junctions—and in brief describes suitable experimental tools.
