Optical Properties of Solids
by Frederick Wooten
Publisher: Academic Press 1972
Number of pages: 260
The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

In photonic circuits photons play the dominant role and they transfer the optical data. With the growth of technology, a new area started to grow as photonic crystals which now play an important role in designing and manufacturing compact devices ...
