  • Introduction to Wavefront Sensorsby Joseph M. Geary

    SPIE 2006; US$ 44.00

    This is a practical book on wavefront sensing. Emphasis is on principles and techniques, rather than detailed mathematical analysis of such systems. The goal is to provide the reader with a qualitative understanding of wavefront sensor operation. more...

  • Introduction to Imaging Spectrometersby William L. Wolfe

    SPIE 1997; US$ 44.00

    The increased interest in imaging spectroscopy has arisen largely for technical reasons. This Tutorial Text first reviews the required background in optics, radiometry, imaging, spectral sensing and focal plane arrays. Then the principles of these subjects are applied to several specific problems to illustrate the way in which such instruments can... more...

  • Local Approximation Techniques in Signal and Image Processingby Vladimir Katkovnik; Karen Egiazarian; Jaakko Astola

    SPIE 2006; US$ 90.00

    This book deals with a wide class of novel and efficient adaptive signal processing techniques developed to restore signals from noisy and degraded observations. These signals include those acquired from still or video cameras, electron microscopes, radar, x rays, or ultrasound devices, and are used for various purposes, including entertainment, medical,... more...

  • Tutorials in Complex Photonic Mediaby Mikhail A. Noginov; Graeme Dewar; Martin W. McCall; Nikolay I. Zheludev

    SPIE 2010; US$ 94.00

    The field of complex photonic media encompasses many leading-edge areas in physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, materials science, and engineering. In Tutorials in Complex Photonic Media , leading experts have brought together 19 tutorials on breakthroughs in modern optics, such as negative refraction, chiral media, plasmonics, photonic crystals, and... more...

  • Advances in Information Optics and Photonicsby Ari T. Friberg; René Dändliker

    SPIE 2008; US$ 88.00

    This volume is the sixth in a series of books initiated in 1989 by the International Commission for Optics (ICO). These books highlight the advances and trends in the research and development of optical sciences, technologies, and applications at the time of their publication. In this age of the photon, information optics and photonics represent the... more...

  • The Art of Radiometryby James M. Palmer; Barbara G. Grant

    SPIE 2009; US$ 78.00

    The material from this book was derived from a popular first-year graduate class taught by James M. Palmer for over twenty years at the University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences. This text covers topics in radiation propagation, radiometric sources, optical materials, detectors of optical radiation, radiometric measurements, and calibration.... more...

  • Nanotechnologyby Raúl J. Martín-Palma; Akhlesh Lakhtakia

    SPIE 2010; US$ 47.00

    The past few decades have seen an explosive increase in our ability to create nanostructures and nanosystems with a great degree of control, using a diversity of techniques. This ability has been accompanied by a similar enhancement in our ability to characterize structures and systems at the nanoscale. This book provides a broad overview of those... more...

  • Field Guide to Interferometric Optical Testingby Eric P. Goodwin; James C. Wyant

    SPIE 2006; US$ 36.00

    A distillation of Dr. Wyant's course at the University of Arizona, this Field Guide covers the key fundamentals of interferometry, types of interferometers and interferograms, concepts of phase-shifting interferometry, long-wavelength interferometry, testing of aspheric surfaces, measurement of surface microstructure, flat and curved surface testing,... more...

  • Optical Correlation Techniques and Applicationsby Oleg V. Angelsky

    SPIE 2007; US$ 75.00

    This monograph examines selected applications of the optical correlation approaches and techniques in diverse problems of modern optics. These problems include linear singular optics of monochromatic, fully spatially coherent light fields; phase singularities in polychromatic (white-light) optical fields; optical correlation techniques for diagnostics... more...

  • The Basics of Spectroscopyby David W. Ball

    SPIE 2001; US$ 44.00

    Spectroscopy--the study of matter using electromagnetic radiation--and its applications as a scientific tool are the focus of this tutorial. Topics covered include the interaction of light with matter, spectrometer fundamentals, quantum mechanics, selection rules, and experimental factors. more...
