  • Demystifying Electromagnetic Equationsby Douglas L. Cohen

    SPIE 2001; US$ 71.00

    In classical Newtonian mechanics, equations and formulas never change form. The same cannot be said about equations and formulas of electromagnetic theory, which often change form when converted from one system of units to another. Douglas Cohen provides exactly what the technical professional needs: a thorough explanation of how to convert electromagnetic... more...

  • Diffractive Opticsby Donald C. O'Shea; Thomas J. Suleski; Alan D. Kathman; Dennis W. Prather

    SPIE 2003; US$ 56.00

    This book provides the reader with the broad range of materials that were discussed in a series of short courses presented at Georgia Tech on the design, fabrication, and testing of diffractive optical elements (DOEs). Although there are not long derivations or detailed methods for specific engineering calculations, the reader should be familiar and... more...

  • Advanced Optics Using Aspherical Elementsby Rudiger Hentschel; Bernhard Braunecker; Hans J. Tiziani

    SPIE 2008; US$ 84.00

    Modern optical systems rely on leading-edge production technologies, especially when using aspherical optical elements. Due to the inherent complexity of aspheres, all efforts to push the technological limits are risky. Thus, to minimize risk, clear decisions based on a good understanding of technology are indispensable. This compendium is written... more...

  • Adaptive Beaming and Imaging in the Turbulent Atmosphereby Vladimir P. Lukin; Boris V. Fortes

    SPIE 2002; US$ 49.00

    Due to the wide application of adaptive optical systems, an understanding of optical wave propagation in randomly inhomogeneous media has become essential, and several numerical models of individual AOS components and of efficient correction algorithms have been developed. This monograph contains detailed descriptions of the mathematical experiments... more...

  • Digital Image Compression Techniquesby Majid Rabbani; Paul W. Jones

    SPIE 1991; US$ 44.00

    In order to utilize digital images effectively, specific techniques are needed to reduce the number of bits required for their representation. This Tutorial Text provides the groundwork for understanding these image compression tecniques and presents a number of different schemes that have proven useful. The algorithms discussed in this book are concerned... more...

  • High-Operating-Temperature Infrared Photodetectorsby Jozef F. Piotrowski; Antoni Rogalski

    SPIE 2007; US$ 69.00

    This book presents approaches, materials, and devices that eliminate the cooling requirements of IR photodetectors operating in the middle- and long-wavelength ranges of the IR spectrum. It is based mainly on the authors' experiences in developing and fabricating near room temperature HgCdTe detectors at Vigo Systems Ltd. and at the Institute... more...

  • Integrated Optomechanical Analysisby Keith B. Doyle; Victor L. Genberg; Gregory J. Michels

    SPIE 2002; US$ 56.00

    This tutorial presents optomechanical modeling techniques to effectively design and analyze high-performance optical systems. It discusses thermal and structural modeling methods that use finite-element analysis to predict the integrity and performance of optical elements and optical support structures. Includes accompanying CD-ROM with examples. more...

  • Field Guide to Atmospheric Opticsby Larry C. Andrews

    SPIE 2004; US$ 36.00

    The material in this Field Guide includes a review of classical Kolmogorov turbulence theory, Gaussian-beam waves in free space, and atmospheric effects on a propagating optical wave. These atmospheric effects have great importance in a variety of applications like imaging, free space optical communications, laser radar, and remote sensing. This Guide... more...

  • EUV Lithographyby Vivek Bakshi

    SPIE 2009; US$ 96.00

    Editorial Review. Dr. Bakshi has compiled a thorough, clear reference text covering the important fields of EUV lithography for high-volume manufacturing. This book has resulted from his many years of experience in EUVL development and from teaching this subject to future specialists. The book proceeds from an historical perspective of EUV lithography,... more...

  • Contrast Sensitivity of the Human Eye and Its Effects on Image Qualityby Peter G. Barten

    SPIE 2000; US$ 64.00

    This book examines contrast sensitivity of the human visual system--concerning the eye's ability to distinguish objects from each other or from the background--and its effects on the image-forming process. The text provides equations for determining various aspects of contrast sensitivity, in addition to models (mathematical expressions) that can... more...
