"This book on Silicon Photonics looks like a must read... More about applications and market potential for telecom and the cloud and less about cryptographic technical equations... How do I tell my wife that I want this for Xmas? :)" --Maxim Kuschnerov, Senior R&D manager at Huawei "Silicon photonics will be a key technology for a post-Moore's law era, and it will be the chip industry, not the photonics industry, that will drive optics". I think there is a lot of truth in that statement, but I also think that the vast majority of the photonics industry is not yet aware of this. The chip industry is catching up quickly to this way of thinking, although these guys are - understandably - quite conservative." --Martijn Heck, associated professor at Aarhus University "A great job on the topic of silicon photonics. It is refreshing to read a book on an important topic that reflects on trends and what is important, rather than just a stapling together of research papers." --John Bowers, Director, Institute for Energy Efficiency Kavli Professor of Nanotechnology ECE and Materials Departments, University of California, Santa Barbara "It is very challenging to provide value in a book to such a diverse audience, but this book is a solid introduction for technologists, managers, and lay-persons. I would recommend this book to anyone with a desire or need to understand Silicon Photonics." --Blaine Bateman, president of management consultancy, EAF LLC, author of a detailed report on silicon photonics "Excellent book." --Matt Walker, Telecom Industry Analyst and Consultant "Great read and overview of the business!" -- Isabel de Sousa, IBM Canada "I read your fine book on Silicon Photonics and found it very helpful in grounding me with the history of this technology, the players, and the challenges." -Charlie Wuischpard, CEO of Ayar Labs, California, USA
