Offers an applications-oriented introduction to the field of electro-optics. The author begins by discussing the fundamental principles of optics, semiconductor electronics, and electromagnetics. He then describes such optoelectronic devices as LEDs, diode lasers, and photodiodes, and shows how they are integrated into electronic circuits. Finally, he turns to electro-optical systems, including the compact disk player and infrared data transmission. For students who need it, there is a short tutorial on the basics of operational amplifiers. Annotation c.
