About this book

Photonic-based A/D conversion has received and continues to receive considerable attention as an alternative approach to providing enhanced resolution and speed in high-performance applications. Some of the potential advantages of using pho- tonic technologies are high-speed clocking, broadband sam- pling, reduced mutual interference of signals, and compati- bility with existing photonic-based systems. This book pro- vides a comprehensive look at the application of photonic devices and architectures to the problem of A/D conversion. It includes a complete description of A/D converter performance characteristics, the various approaches to A/D conversion, and an introduction to several photonic devices used in photonic A/D converters, and it includes a detailed treatment of the application of both temporal and spatial oversampling techniques to photonic A/D conversion. It shows progress made, discusses current research, and provides a glimpse of several promising future architecutres and technologies.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book is intended to serve as a resource for scientists, engineers, and students interested in performance characteristics and measures of A/D converters, classical A/D conversion techniques, and photonic approaches to A/D conversion. … The book is well organized and the text easily understandable. … It is a book which should be available in any University library." (D.H. Miller, Optik, Vol. 117, 2006)

"The book has a readable style unlike others. … The book starts off with a simple to read introduction. … It would be useful to people who already had some knowledge in the field and would like an overview, such as an academic wishing to form a new course." (Justin Blows, The Physicist, Vol. 38 (5), 2001)
