This reference offers tools for engineers, scientists, biologists, and others working with the computational techniques of nanophotonics. It introduces the key concepts of computational methods in a manner that is easily digestible for newcomers to the field. The book also examines future applications of nanophotonics in the technical industry and covers new developments and interdisciplinary research in engineering, science, and medicine. It provides an overview of the key computational nanophotonics and describes the technologies with an emphasis on how they work and their key benefits. • Explains the technical methods as an approximate numerical approach for studying computational nanophotonics • Explores new developments and interdisciplinary research in engineering, science, and medicine using computational nanophotonics • Covers business applications and commercialization in nanophotonics as well as future directions, opportunities, and challenges • Guides readers to compute nanowaveguides, nanotubes, nanowire, nanofibers, nanoparticles, quantum dots, low-dimensional nanostructures, and nanofabrication techniques • Discusses the computational methods in nanophotonics in all areas of technology

Edited by a leader in the field, this book describes silicon photonics from the basics to integrated systems and applications. It covers a broad spectrum from the theory to applications, emphasizing passive and active photonic devices, fabrication, integration and the convergence with CMOS technology. The book includes contributions from other leading players to provide the first handbook on the subject, and at a time when the field is mature enough to warrant a single volume providing a complete overview of theory, applications, systems, and technology.
