Optoelectronics - Advanced Materials and Devices is a second edition following the initial Optoelectronics - Materials and Techniques book published in 2011 as part of the InTech collection of international works on optoelectronics. Optoelectronics, as the discipline devoted to the study and application of electronic devices that emit, detect, and otherwise control light, has widely proliferated globally and enabled many of today's modern conveniences.
Optoelectronic devices impact many areas of society, from simple household appliances and multimedia systems to communications, computing, spatial scanning, optical monitoring, 3D measurements and medical instruments. This is the most complete book about optoelectromechanic systems and semiconductor optoelectronic devices; it provides an accessible, well-organized overview of optoelectronic devices and properties that emphasizes basic principles.
Optoelectronics - Materials and Techniques is the first part of an edited anthology on
the multifaceted areas of optoelectronics contributed by a selected group of authors
including promising novices to experts in the field, where are discussed related
materials and techniques. Photonics and optoelectronics are making an impact
multiple times the semiconductor revolution made on the quality of our life.
Optoelectronics - Devices and Applications is the second part of an edited anthology
on the multifaceted areas of optoelectronics by a selected group of authors including
promising novices to experts in the field, where are discussed design and fabrication
of device structures and the underlying phenomena. Many of the optoelectronic and
photonic effects are integrated into a vast array of devices and applications in
numerous combinations, and more are in fast development.
As we begin the twenty-first century, nanoscience and technology are advancing at a
rapid pace and making revolutionary contributions in many fields including electronics,
materials science, chemistry, biology, structures and mechanics, and optoelectronics.
Although nanoscience and technology are progressing along many
fronts, the most impressive progress has been made in the area of semiconductor
