The first textbook on photonics, prepared jointly by Russian and American professors. The book is devoted to one of the most promising directions in computer science. The reader will receive a physical justification for the possibility and feasibility of replacing, in a number of problems, the informatics of an electric current with a stream of coherent photons.
The book contains all the necessary materials, nevertheless, it is provided with an extensive bibliography that can be used for in-depth study of individual sections. The textbook is based on lecture courses in informatics, quantum electronics and photonics, which the authors read to students at the University of Pennsylvania and MEPhI.
For teachers and students of physical specialties - photonics, laser physics, quantum electronics of higher educational institutions.
