  Optoelectronics, first published in , is a practical and self-contained graduate-level textbook on the subject, which will be of great value to both advanced engineering students and practising engineers. Sophisticated concepts are introduced in a practical and coherent way, including such topics as quantum mechanics of electron-photon interaction, quantisation of the /5(3). Description: Optoelectronics - Advanced Device Structures (Book IV) is following the Optoelectronics (Books I, II, and III) published in , , and , as part of the InTech collection of international works on optoelectronics. Accordingly, as with the first three books of the collection, this book covers recent achievements by. Get this from a library!

The book begins by developing the basic tools of quantum optics, and goes on to show the application of these tools in a variety of quantum optical systems, including lasing without inversion, squeezed states and atom optics. It also examines in- and ex-situ growth techniques and the GaInPGaAs system, including optical investigations of quantum wells and superlattices. The book concludes with a discussion of the current use, novel developments, and future potential for optical devices, GaAs-based lasers and heterojunctions, and optoelectronic integrated circuits. Introduction to Quantum Optics - Grynberg, Aspect, Fabre: I found this book to be a very good introduction for someone with some background in QM at undergrad level. As the subtitle suggests, the authors first start with the semi-classical description of light-matter interactions before moving on to the fully quantised treatment. She holds 50 U.S. patents and has given more than invited and plenary talks. Her current research interest is in nanoscale optoelectronic quantum devices. An Imaging Perspective from the Nanometer Scale. Advances in material science at the nanometer scale are opening new doors in the area of optics and electronics.
