Focusing on the important obstacles to making silicon photonics a viable commercial reality, this book introduces major developments in the field. Worldwide experts clearly explain associated fundamentals and state-of-the-art approaches. After a historical review, the text discusses the critical areas of silicon wire waveguides, piezoelectric tuning of silicon’s optical properties, and short-pulse techniques in silicon photonics. It also addresses mid-wavelength infrared applications, biosensing applications, growth techniques, hybrid lasers on silicon, and energy harvesting.
