This far-reaching resource gives you an in-depth look at the technological developments fueling the drive to the realization of ubiquitous IT services. Based on groundbreaking papers presented at the International Symposium on New Frontiers for Ubiquitous IT Services, the book describes a wide range of state-of-the-art engineering advances in photonics, sensing, electronics, micro-mechatronics, networks, and communication schemes, introduced by some of the leading pioneers in the field. You get details on cutting-edge design innovations in technologies like nanophotonics, femtosecond pulse processing, and optical coherence tomography together with a thorough look at emerging applications that run the gamut from biomedical sensors and intra-body networks to “smart” buildings and long haul communications.

You also get a solid read on the increasingly successful use of photonic crystal fibers, quasi-phasematched nonlinear optics, optical fiber sensors, and millimeter-wave photonic technologies in communications and sensing. A section on the standardization for optical communications and sensors, plus a look at the challenges in ubiquitous IT services yet to be tackled, round out this indispensable report on the advances that have brought us to the threshold of a new age in information technology.
