Now in its Third Edition, Fundamentals of Optical Waveguides continues to be an essential resource for any researcher, professional or student involved in optics and communications engineering. Any reader interested in designing or actively working with optical devices must have a firm grasp of the principles of lightwave propagation. Katsunari Okamoto continues to present this difficult technology clearly and concisely with several illustrations and equations. Optical theory encompassed in this reference includes coupled mode theory, nonlinear optical effects, finite element method, beam propagation method, staircase concatenation method, along with several central theorems and formulas. Silicon photonics devices such as coupled resonator optical waveguides (CROW), lattice-form filters, and AWGs are also fully described.

This new edition gives readers not only a thorough understanding the silicon photonics devices for on-chip photonic network, but also the capability to design various kinds of devices.
