Book Review — Programmable Integrated Photonics by José Capmany and Daniel Pérez

once found chiefly in academic and R&D labs, are now routinely produced in the commercial market for a variety of end applications. Commensurate with the field’s maturity, several textbooks and monographs have been published in the last few years to either serve as introductions to PIC design methodology or as tutorials summarizing the vast literature. It is therefore timely and fitting for Capmany and Pérez to release their new contribution, which they assert is “the first comprehensive, up-to-date and self-contained introduction to the field of programmable integrated photonics.”
