Optical Planar Circuits

  • Takanori Okoshi
Part of the Springer Series in Electrophysics book series (SSEP, volume 18)


The final two chapters are devoted to the theory of the optical planar circuit which is defined as a circuit having dimensions comparable to the wavelength in one direction but much greater than it in the other two directions. The technical significance of this circuit concept has increased throughout the 1970s because it plays an important role in some types of optical integrated circuitry.
