This book is the solution manual to the textbook "A Modern Course in University Physics". It contains solutions to all the problems in the aforementioned textbook. This solution manual is a good companion to the textbook. In this solution manual, we work out every problem carefully and in detail. With this solution manual used in conjunction with the textbook, the reader can understand and grasp the physics ideas more quickly and deeply. Some of the problems are not purely exercises; they contain extension of the materials covered in the textbook. Some of the problems contain problem-solving techniques that are not covered in the textbook. Request Inspection Copy

Fundamentals of Photonics A complete, thoroughly updated, full-color third edition Fundamentals of Photonics, Third Edition is a self-contained and up-to-date introductory-level textbook that thoroughly surveys this rapidly expanding area of engineering and applied physics. Featuring a blend of theory and applications, coverage includes detailed accounts of the primary theories of light, including ray optics, wave optics, electromagnetic optics, and photon optics, as well as the interaction of light and matter. Presented at increasing levels of complexity, preliminary sections build toward more advanced topics, such as Fourier optics and holography, photonic-crystal optics, guided-wave and fiber optics, LEDs and lasers, acousto-optic and electro-optic devices, nonlinear optical devices, ultrafast optics, optical interconnects and switches, and optical fiber communications. The third edition features an entirely new chapter on the optics of metals and plasmonic devices. Each chapter contains highlighted equations, exercises, problems, summaries, and selected reading lists. Examples of real systems are included to emphasize the concepts governing applications of current interest. Each of the twenty-four chapters of the second edition has been thoroughly updated.
"Featuring more than five hundred questions with worked out solutions and detailed illustrations, this book is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master Honors in physics essentials."--Page 4 of cover.
