About the book

Recent advances in optoelectronic developments at the component and device levels offer great opportunities in meeting state-of-the art applications requirements from 5G deployment with opto-electronic based transceivers for front-haul and back-haul cellular data traffic to complex photonic integration where high-bandwidth requirements are needed for datacenter, metro, and long-haul fiber optic transport, to IoT and recent advances in Augmented Reality headset commercialization, in addition to sophisticated lidar designs, require an in-depth treatment to the subject of opto-electronics that is at the heart of all the product areas listed above, not just listing the latest advances of each area of opto-electronic components from the light sources to the modulating device to the detectors but also the tight integration needed with high speed electronic devices that drive, amplify and deliver the needed signal integrity for high-bandwidth applications. Another important area to address is the packaging requirements to deliver reliable products and modules including light coupling in and out of photonic chips, thermal management, and chip stacking to address the necessary integration required.

This book aims to address the latest breakthroughs in laser sources developments, modulator, and detector developments, also to cover packaging and integration in order to describe in details how modules and products are built for today's state-of-the-art applications while also providing a roadmap for developing and building next generation opto-electronic based products.

Publishing process

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
