Fundamentals of Optical Waveguides is an essential resource for any researcher, professional or student involved in optics and communications engineering. Any reader interested in designing or actively working with optical devices must have a firm grasp of the principles of lightwave propagation. Katsunari Okamoto has presented this difficult technology clearly and concisely with several illustrations and equations. Optical theory encompassed in this reference includes coupled mode theory, nonlinear optical effects, finite element method, beam propagation method, staircase concatenation method, along with several central theorems and formulas.
Since the publication of the well-received first edition of this book, planar lightwave circuits and photonic crystal fibers have fully matured. With this second edition the advances of these fibers along with other improvements on existing optical technologies are completely detailed. This comprehensive volume enables readers to fully analyze, design and simulate optical atmospheres.

"...the second edition of Fundamentals of Optical Waveguides emphasizes optical theory, including coupled-mode theory, nonlinear optical effects, and finite element, beam propagation and staircase concatenation methods...A new chapter on arrayed-waveguide grating discusses the principles of operation, fundamental characteristics and analytical treatment of the grating demultiplexing properties." - Photonics Spectra, Sept. 2006From the Publisher:
A complete theoretical basis
Fundamentals of Optical Waveguides gives a complete theoretical basis of optical fibers and planar lightwave circuits. Fundamental analytical waveguide theories are introduced and various numerical methods are are presented. Recent topics on planar lightwave circuit (PLC) devices are described including operational principles of arrayed-waveguide grating multiplexers (AWGs) and their applications. Readers will acquire a thorough understanding of optical fibers and waveguides as well as capabilities of designing and simulating novel optical devices.
Key Features: • Thorough and informative description of waveguide theory • First book dealing with principles and applications of AWGs and PLCs • Full description of nonlinear optical effects in optical fibers such as optical solitons and four wave mixing etc. • Detailed theory on light coupling phenomena in directional couplers and Bragg gratings
