Most popular at the top

  • Field Guide to Image Processingby Khan M. Iftekharuddin; Abdul A. Awwal

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 36.00

    Digital imaging is essential to many industries, such as remote sensing, entertainment, defense, and biotechnology, and many processing techniques have been developed over time. This SPIE Field Guide serves as a resource for commonly used image-processing concepts and tools; readers will better understand how to apply these tools to various problems... more...

  • High Dynamic Range Imagingby Arnaud Darmont

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 47.00

    Illumination is a crucial element in many applications, matching the luminance of the scene with the operational range of a camera. When luminance cannot be adequately controlled, a high dynamic range (HDR) imaging system may be necessary. This book provides readers with an intermediate discussion of HDR image sensors and techniques for industrial... more...

  • Image Acquisition and Preprocessing for Machine Vision Systemsby P K Sinha

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 96.00

    Image Acquisition and Preprocessing for Machine Vision Systems is a comprehensive reference text detailing every aspect of acquisition and preprocessing, from the illumination of a scene to the optics of image forming, from CCD and CMOS image capture to the transformation of the captured image. This book bridges the gaps between hardware and software... more...

  • Introduction to Semiconductor Manufacturing Technologyby Hong Xiao

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 110.00

    IC chip manufacturing processes are complex methods that draw upon many disciplines. Introduction to Semiconductor Manufacturing Technologies, Second Edition describes the processes with minimal mathematics, chemistry, and physics; it covers advanced concepts while keeping the contents accessible to readers without advanced degrees. Designed as a textbook... more...

  • Modeling the Optical and Visual Performance of the Human Eyeby Pier Giorgio Gobbi

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 73.00

    This book provides a faithful and robust simulation of the optical and visual performances of the human eye for axial vision of distant objects in a variety of visual conditions. It includes both theoretical aspects and experimental measurements from scientific literature. A brief summary is provided at the end of each chapter, making this book appropriate... more...

  • Optical Scatteringby John C. Stover

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 73.00

    Newly included are scatter models for pits and particles as well as the use of wafer scanners to locate and size isolated surface features. New sections cover the multimillion-dollar wafer scanner business, establishing that microroughness is the noise, not the signal, in these systems. Scatter measurements, now routinely used to determine whether... more...

  • Pyroelectric Materialsby A. K. Batra; M. D. Aggarwal

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 56.00

    This monograph contains comprehensive cutting-edge information on pyroelectric materials and theirpreparation, properties, and applications, such as uncooled wideband infrared detectors, particlegenerators, and ambient energy harvesters. The complete lifecycle of a pyroelectric material is presentedhere for readersā??from the theory of operation, to... more...

  • Stray Light Analysis and Controlby Eric Fest

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 47.00

    Stray light is defined as unwanted light in an optical system, a familiar concept for anyone who has taken a photograph with the sun in or near their camera's field of view. This book addresses stray light terminology, radiometry, and the physics of stray light mechanisms, such as surface roughness scatter and ghost reflections. The most-efficient... more...

  • Basic Optics for the Astronomical Sciencesby James Breckinridge

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 78.00

    This text was written to provide students of astronomy and engineers an understanding of optical science - the study of the generation, propagation, control, and measurement of optical radiation - as it applies to telescopes and instruments for astronomical research in the areas of astrophysics, astrometry, exoplanet characterization, and planetary... more...

  • Chemical Vapor Deposited Zinc Sulfideby John S. McCloy; Randal W. Tustison

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 56.00

    Zinc sulfide has shown unequaled utility for infrared windows that require a combination of long-wavelength infrared transparency, mechanical durability, and elevated-temperature performance. This book reviews the physical properties of chemical vapor deposited ZnS and their relationship to the CVD process that produced them. An in-depth look at the... more...
