  • Jose Cabrera, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid
  • Fernando Agullo-Rueda

This comprehensive text provides an understanding of the physical phenomenon behind electrooptics. It describes in detail modern electrooptic materials and operative physical mechanisms, and devotes a full chapter tothe new materials engineering that is contributing to the development of low-dimensional systems. The book also reviews device applications in both bulk and waveguide technologies.
