This book serves as a natural sequel to an earlier topics volume entitled Integrated Optics, first published in 1975 and later reissued in updated editions [1.1]. Now, twelve years later, the status of the technological area has matured and its horizons have expanded considerably. To gain a proper perspective, Sect. 1.1 presents a brief overview on the evolution of integrated optics and its current coverage. Section 1.2 then provides a descriptive outline of the other chapters in the book. In this context, we have listed only references published in 1982 or later and refer the reader to the last (1982) edition of [1.1] for earlier work.
