This is a standard reference among physicists; it has an illustrative style, with good emphasis on the conceptual, with the analytic following after the sense of basic principles.
A text for senior undergraduates and graduate students in Physics and Engineering, as well as research scientists and practicing engineers in the telecommunications industry. Includes: pulse propagation in fibers, group-velocity dispersion, self- and cross-phase modulation, optical solitons, stimulated Raman and Brillouin scattering, polarization effects, and parametric processes.
This is a standard reference among physicists; it has an analytic
style, with emphasis on the mathematical, with the conceptual
tending to evolve out of the analytic results.
This reference includes emphasis on instruments, techniques and standard practice in photonics; it is most likely to interest engineers, including senior undergraduates and graduate students through practicing engineers.
This reference provides a broad introduction to photonics and applied optics, including some limited principles and brief foundational science. It is most likely to interest engineers, inuding senior undergraduates and graduate students.
