Ebook Ebook


Optoelectronic sensors are of great importance in optoelectronic transmission systems. With this in mind, this book aims to provide accessible yet authoritative coverage of semiconductor-based photodetectors for various optical wavelengths.
Optoelectronic Sensors starts by explaining the main characteristics of all photodetectors, before moving on to cover the classical PIN photodiode, the avalanche photodiode, phototransistors, the metal-semiconductor-metal photodiode and photodetectors designed for ultraviolet wavelengths. It concludes by discussing the very significant problem of noise in these sensors.
Written by a wide range of specialists in this field, this book represents an indispensable resource for those looking to increase their understanding of optoelectronics.
