Nanodevices for Photonics and Electronics : Advances and Applications (Hardcover)
about this item
Photonics and electronics are endlessly converging into a single technology by exploiting the possibilities given by nanostructuring of materials and devices. It is expected that next-generation optoelectronics devices will show great improvements in terms of performance, flexibility, and energy consumption. The main limits of nanoelectronics are overcome by using a photonic approach and, on the other hand, nanophotonics has become a mature technology thanks to the miniaturization strategies developed in microelectronics.
Mastering such a complex topic requires a multidisciplinary approach and a solid knowledge of several topics. This book describes recent advances in nanophotonic and nanoelectronic systems while keeping an eye on real applications of such technologies. Starting from pure photonic systems, the monograph describes several examples in which the interaction between photonics and electronics is exploited to achieve faster, compact, and more efficient devices.
