- CRC Press 2008; US$ 167.95
Focusing on the unresolved debate between Newton and Huygens from 300 years ago, The Nature of Light: What is a Photon? discusses the reality behind enigmatic photons. It explores the fundamental issues pertaining to light that still exist today. Gathering contributions from globally recognized specialists in electrodynamics and quantum optics,... more...

Spin angular momentum of photons and the associated polarization of light has been known for many years. However, it is only over the last decade or so that physically realizable laboratory light beams have been used to study the orbital angular momentum of light. In many respects, orbital and spin angular momentum behave in a similar manner, but they... more...

Just like the periodical crystalline potential in solid-state crystals determines their properties for the conduction of electrons, the periodical structuring of photonic crystals leads to envisioning the possibility of achieving a control of the photon flux in dielectric and metallic materials. The use of photonic crystals as a cage for storing,... more...

Covering the fundamentals as well as many special topics of current interest, this is the most concise, up-to-date, and accessible graduate-level textbook on quantum mechanics available. Written by Gerald Mahan, a distinguished research physicist and author of an acclaimed textbook on many-particle physics, Quantum Mechanics in a Nutshell is the... more...

Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Photon-based Nanoscience and Technology: from Atomic Level Manipulation to Materials Synthesis and Nano-Biodevice Manufacturing (Photon-NST'2005), Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, 19-29 September 2005 more...
- Springer Milan 2009; US$ 109.00
This text is an overview of photonic crystal activity developed in the frame of COST P11 action. It focuses on the active and non-linear properties of photonic crystals and the fabrication of characterization of photonic crystal structures. more...

In 1984 Desmond O?Connor and David Phillips published their comprehensive book ?Time-correlated Single Photon Counting?. At that time time-correlated s- gle photon counting, or TCSPC, was used primarily to record fluorescence decay functions of dye solutions in cuvettes. From the beginning, TCSPC was an am- ingly sensitive and accurate technique with... more...
