“This excellent reference provides broad coverage of the emerging and developing field of optofluidics. The book will be extremely useful for professionals and graduate students working on nanotechnologies that deploy optofluidic designs such as the lab on a chip and optofluidic transport mechanisms. … Those interested in waveguides will find useful information about photonic crystal waveguides and integrated optofluidic waveguides.” —OPN Optics & Photonics News, November 2010

“I've found this book to be very useful ... the part on optical elements and devices is a great reference, and the data in the appendices will save my students a lot of time in the future!” —Graham A. Turnbull, University of St. Andrews, Scotland, UK

Third Edition Alan Rogers Independent Consultant, Leatherhead, UK

Essentials of Optoelectronics, Third Edition describes the entire range of optoelectronic principles and techniques in detail. The book presents a new approach, concentrating on physical principles, demonstrating their interdependence, and gives insight into the underlying physical processes while being readable, easy to follow, and entirely self-contained. In addition to offering a comprehensive treatment of the optical and electronic principles that form the foundation of optoelectronics, this book covers the fundamentals and provides detailed coverage of lasers, waveguides including nonlinear optics, optical signal processing, and optical computing. A solutions manual and figure slides are available upon qualifying course adoption.

Catalog no. K15858, December 2013, c. 552 pp. Soft Cover ISBN: 978-1-4665-5965-3, $89.95 / £57.99 Also available as an eBook


This handbook provides detailed coverage of this emerging field with chapters divided into three main sections. The first part defines a set of foundational principles for the field, the second discusses novel devices with optical properties manipulated by fluids, and the third covers state-of-the-art methods for particle detection and manipulation primarily being developed for biosensing and biomedical applications.
