Photonic devices lie at the heart of the communications revolution, and have become a large and important part of the electronic engineering field, so much so that many colleges now treat this as a subject in its own right. With this in mind, the author has put together a unique textbook covering every major photonic device, and striking a careful balance between theoretical and practical concepts. The book assumes a basic knowledge of optics, semiconductors and electromagnetic waves. Many of the key background concepts are reviewed in the first chapter. Devices covered include optical fibers, couplers, electro-optic devices, magneto-optic devices, lasers and photodetectors. Problems are included at the end of each chapter and a solutions set is available. The book is ideal for senior undergraduate and graduate courses, but being device driven it is also an excellent engineers' reference.

'This book is clearly and carefully written. It excels in the clarity of figures and completely worked-out numerical examples. Numerous problems and carefully selected references further enhance the usefulness of this text ... a welcome addition to the field of photonic engineering and is highly recommended as a suitable text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in this area.' Nicolaas Bloembergen, College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona
'...Jia-Ming Liu has been thorough in his treatment of this complex subject ... In all parts the treatment of the subject is comprehensive and mathematical, but also quite readable with a myriad of diagrams helping to illustrate the points made. The work is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students looking to specialize in this field, but will be a useful text for any engineer dealing with these devices.' IEE Communications Engineer
