Description

This book investigates the behavior of light (light pulse) within the micro- and nano-scale device (ring resonator), which can be integrated to form the device, circuits, and systems that can be used for atom/molecule trapping and transportation, optical transistor, fast calculation devices (optical gate), nanoscale communication and networks, and energy storage, etc. The large demand of small-scale device, especially, with light signal processing is needed. This book discusses device (nano device) design and simulation, which can be useful for practice in the near future.

Reviews

"This book represents an extensive collection of the most updated studies about nanophotonics and its applications. This is an interesting work and an excellent reference for inspiring scientists and students, especially for those seeking inspiration from the most fascinating discoveries in the field of nanophotonics."

—Prof. Asghar Asgari, The University of Western Australia
