Preface; Numerical definitions A-Z; Appendix.
'This book takes a unique, encyclopedic approach to optoelectronics and photonics. It covers the most important terms in the subject areas in alphabetical order, ranging from fundamental concepts to cutting-edge applications. The text includes more than 600 self-explanatory illustrations that enable readers to quickly grasp key concepts. Mathematical equations are used only when absolutely necessary, and lengthy derivations are avoided. Knowledge of standard university-level mathematics is sufficient for understanding the contents. The handbook is intended for a broad audience, from undergraduate and graduate students to scientists and engineers in academia and industry.' Darko Vasiljevic, Optics and Photonics News
