Both photodetectors and fiber optics represent very exciting areas of research that will play an important role in future communication technology. Photodetectors and Fiber Optics presents highly coherent coverage of photodetectors and optical fibers. The topics covered in this book include semiconductor photoconductors for visible to far-infrared detection, resonant cavity enhanced photodetectors, gallium arsenide based infrared detectors, bulk semiconductors for infrared applications. Photodetectors have been extensively used for applications in optical fibers. The role of photodetectors for optical fiber communications has been discussed. The topics include germanium-dioxide-based glasses as optical sensors materials and high-bandwidth optical networks and communication. Both photodetectors and fiber optics represent very exciting areas of research that will play an important role in future communication technology. This book is an invaluable resource for scientists and upper level graduate students working in solid state physics, optical engineering and photophysics, fiber optics, electrical and electronic engineering, materials science, data storage, information technology and semiconductor industries.
