Quotes and reviews

@qu:"In 14 chapters the author presents the most important aspects of photonics in a truly cogent fashion and sets the record straight for numerous misconceptions....Overall, I found Applied Photonics by Yeh to be an excellent reference book. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction stating the objectives of the discussion and ends with a summary and a reference list. The references are quite recent...A comprehensive index makes the book an extremely useful reference tool.Its small size makes it ideal for a traveling companion when a photonics reference book is necessary."
