Review: 'Theory of Dielectric Optical Waveguides,' 2nd edition, by Dietrich MarcuseOptical Engineering
Document TypeBook Review
AbstractI suppose I ought to say up front that while preparing this review I often found myself feeling very much like a student evaluating his teacher. After all, it was, in part, the first edition of Dietrich Marcuse's Theory of Dielectric Optical Waveguides (among a handful of other similar texts) from which I first studied the principles of optical waveguide theory under the demanding, yet patient and graceful guidance of Dr. Ahmad Safaai-Jazi. Thus with the utmost respect for a teacher whom I have never met, I shall try to faithfully share my thoughts and feelings regarding the second edition of the Theory of Dielectric Optical Waveguides.
