Jurgen Jahns is Professor for Optical Information Technology at the University of Hagen. His fields of activity in micro- and nanooptics are systems integration, diffractive optics, optical computing, and sensorics. Before entering the academic career he spent almost a decade in industrial research at Siemens AG, Munchen and AT&T Bell Labs, NJ (now Alcatel Lucent). He is author of several books on Microoptics and Advisory Editor of the Journal of the Optical Society of Korea. Stefan Helfert is Adjunct Professor for Electrical Engineering at the University of Hagen. He dedicates his activities to the development of optical wave guides, microoptical components and integrated optics.
The aim of this book is to provide a good theoreticalbasis for micro-and nano-optical structures. (Optics & Photonics News, 1 September 2013)
