Harnessing Light is a text on Photonics, aimed to undergraduate and recent postgraduate engineers and physicists interested in this fascinating topic. In Photonics, light is tamed and manipulated to deploy its powerful properties in a myriad of applications. The approach adopted in this text is intended to ease the way into the main concepts. The goal of each Section is finding the best way to describe the involved phenomena, alleviating mathematical formulations that sometimes hinder the core of the topic. When required, the mathematical supports are shown in separate Appendices. The Sections are divided into three parts, namely, an introduction of the fundamental background required for the concepts at hand, a detailed study of light generation, transmission, and detection, preferentially dealing with semiconductor sources and detectors since they are involved in many common photonic areas. The third part includes detailed descriptions of some specific photonic devices of the highest relevance: the eye, digital cameras, and displays.
Prof. José M Otón is a Full Professor at the Department of Photonics Technology and Bioengineering of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain. He is also Director of the CEMDATIC R&D Center at the said University, a center focused on the development of devices for Information and Communication Technology based on unconventional magnetic, acoustic, and photonic materials. He teaches several matters related to Optical Communications, Photonic Circuits, Medical Imaging, and Electrooptics.
Dr. Eva Otón is a Materials Engineer and a Chemist, specializing in liquid crystal photonic devices. She is currently doing research at the Institute of Applied Physics at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland, where she teaches several matters on Photonic Engineering and Functional Materials.
She previously worked at a Nikon research center in Tokyo, Japan, and at CEMDATIC R&D Center at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain.
She also enjoys dogs, chocolate, carnivorous plants, cartoons, heavy metal and making jewelry and sculptures.
