Item description for Semiconductor Optics (Advanced Texts in Physics) by Claus Klingshirn...
This updated and enlarged new edition of Semiconductor Optics provides an introduction to and an overview of semiconductor optics from the IR through the visible to the UV, including linear and nonlinear optical properties, dynamics, magneto- and electrooptics, high-excitation effects, some applications, experimental techniques and group theory. The mathematics is kept as elementary as possible, sufficient for an intuitive understanding of the experimental results and techniques treated. The subjects covered extend from physics to materials science and optoelectronics. New or updated chapters add coverage of current topics such as cavity polaritons, photonic structures, structures of reduced dimensionality or the semiconductor Bloch equations, while the chapters on bulk materials have been revised and updated.

Reviews - What do customers think about Semiconductor Optics (Advanced Texts in Physics)?
Excellent book Apr 15, 2007
This book is a very comprehensive treatment of semiconductor optics. At the begining, I was hesitant to buy it. So I borrowed an older edition from our library. I was so much impressed, that I bought my own copy. A colleague of mine is so much impressed by the lucidity of arguments in the book, that he reads a passage from it for us at work every once in a while. This book spans the breadth of the subject from basic the fundamental concepts of optics and solid state physics to the more advanced such as semiconductor Bloch equations. I highly recommend this book. If I teach semiconductor optics at any time, this would be the textbook that I will use (by the way, it has excellent problems at the end of each chapter.)
Excellent for experimentalists in semiconductor optics Nov 16, 1999
This book covers the basics of optical processes in semiconductors from an experimentalist perspective. Therefore the theory is a bit light, but all the concepts are there as well as many useful insights. An excellent introduction to the subject.
