This comprehensive text combines fiber and integrated optics material in a one-semester text for seniors. The text is specific in its coverage of fiber optics, with physical insight into the development of ray-optic and wave-field description of waveguiding. Students will benefit from a review of the required math and electromagnetic background in Chapter 1. Sections on the latest applications such as fiber optic sensors, optical amplifiers, and optical interconnects are included.
