Photonic Design: From Fundamental Solar Cell Physics to Computational Inverse Design
by Owen D. Miller
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 136
This work unites fundamental physics and a novel computational inverse design approach towards energy-efficient photonic and optoelectronic devices. The book is devoted to the physics of high-efficiency solar cells and inverse design as a new computational paradigm in photonics.

The book is intended to introduce both basic geometric optics and the laser. The materials are presented in an action-oriented format combining many of the features normally found in a textbook with those usually associated with a laboratory manual.
