This book proposes and reviews comprehensive strategies based on optical electronics for constructing optoelectronic systems with minimized optics excess. It describes the core technologies such as self-organized optical waveguides based on self-organized lightwave network (SOLNET), three-dimensional optical circuits, material-saving heterogeneous thin-film device integration process (PL-Pack with SORT), and high-speed/small-size light modulators and optical switches. The book also presents applications of optical electronics, including integrated optical interconnects within computers and massive optical switching systems utilizing three-dimensional self-organized optical circuits, solar energy conversion systems, and bio/medical photonics such as cancer therapy.
"I recommend this book as a unique and excellent reference for researchers aiming at next-generation optical interconnections and all interested in future super-performance integrated electronics systems."
—Prof. Osamu Wada - Kobe University, Japan
"The book gives excellent details on theoretical fundamentals, circuit analysis, and experimental demonstrations. The self-organized integration approach is feasible and innovative for cost reduction and space saving, both of which are vital for new technology implementations."
—Dr. Michael G. Lee - Fujitsu Laboratories of America, USA
"Toward the industrialization of optical interconnects, we have to think about how we can reduce cost and size. In this book, Prof. Yoshimura gives us an excellent approach to solving the problem: developing the self-organized integration of optoelectronic devices. His broad vision based on his extensive experience will be highly useful to young scientists."
—Dr. Tetsuo Sato - Nissan Chemical Industries, LTD., Japan
This remarkable book introduces and describes the concept of self-organized integration of optoelectronics that makes assembly and packaging of high-speed optoelectronic systems suitable for a volume production environment. A recommended read for anyone interested in high-speed optoelectronics and interconnects.
