The Physical Fundamentals of Electro-Optics

The Physical Fundamentals of Electro-Optics

This book offers a much-needed practical guide to characterizing difficulties met by designers of electro-optical current devices, such as lasers, laser diodes and photodiodes, and advanced optical devices, such as avalanche and erbium diodes, to overcome drawbacks associated with optical communication links, wireless (for LIDAR applications) and wired (for fiber-optical communication). All these drawbacks suffer from various types of noises inside each element of the devices under analysis and the corresponding fading phenomenon when various types of optical signals with information data transverse these channels.

It will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students and professionals dealing with optical communication and the design of electro-optic devices. The book explores the theoretical background and practical aspects both when optical signals propagate through a wireless channel (for LIDAR atmospheric applications) and when they propagate through an optical fiber.


Professor Nathan Blaunstein received his MSc, PhD, and DSc degrees in 1972, 1984, and 1991, respectively. He served as Full Professor at Ben-Gurion University, Israel, and is an expert in the fields of radio physics, optics, radar, and LIDAR, and their applications in wireless and fiber optic communication, geophysics, and bio-medicine. He is the author of 17 books, five book chapters, and over 190 journal articles.

Dr Irit Juwiler received her PhD in Electrical Engineering-Physical Electronics from Tel-Aviv University, Israel, in 2004. She is currently the Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at the Ashdod Campus of Shamoon College of Engineering, Israel, and Head of its Research Center for Electro-Optics. She specializes in optics, nonlinear optics, nonlinear materials, lasers, and optical fibers, and her current research includes biomedical optics, atmospheric optics, and quantum optics. She is the author of one book, one book chapter, and over 20 journal articles.
