To make the second edition as widely appealing as possible a series of... more...

  • Polarization of Light with Applications in Optical Fibersby Arun Kumar; Ajoy Ghatak

    SPIE 2011; US$ 56.00

    This book covers the basic concepts and methods involved in polarization of light, and features important methods of analysis such as Jones matrices, Stokes parameters, and Poincaré sphere. It provides the background needed to understand the workings of, and to design, various photonic devices, including Faraday rotators, inline fiber optic components... more...

  • Soft X-Ray Opticsby Eberhard A. Spiller

    SPIE 1993; US$ 65.00

    This text describes optics mainly in the 10 to 500 angstrom wavelength region. These wavelengths are 50 to 100 times shorter than those for visible light and 50 to 100 times longer than the wavelengths of medical x rays or x-ray diffraction from natural crystals. There have been substantial advances during the last 20 years, which one can see as an... more...

  • Photonic Sensingby Gaozhi Xiao; Wojtek J. Bock

    Wiley 2012; US$ 137.00 US$ 118.73

    A cutting-edge look at safety and security applications of photonic sensors With its many superior qualities, photonic sensing technology is increasingly used in early-detection and early-warning systems for biological hazards, structural flaws, and security threats. Photonic Sensing provides for the first time a comprehensive review of this... more...

  • Fundamentals of Optical Fiber Sensorsby Zujie Fang; Ken Chin; Ronghui Qu; Haiwen Cai; Kai Chang

    Wiley 2012; US$ 122.00 US$ 105.73

    This book describes the latest development in optical fiber devices, and their applications to sensor technology. Optical fiber sensors, an important application of the optical fiber, have experienced fast development, and attracted wide attentions in basic science as well as in practical applications. Sensing is often likened to human sense organs.... more...

  • Engineering Project Appraisalby Martin Rogers; Aidan Duffy

    Wiley 2012; US$ 75.95 US$ 65.82

    In most cases of civil engineering development, a range of alternative schemes meeting  project goals are feasible, so some form of evaluation must be carried out to select the most appropriate to take forward. Evaluation criteria usually include the economic, environmental and social contexts of a project as well as the engineering challenges,... more...

  • CMOS Receiver Front-ends for Gigabit Short-Range Optical Communicationsby Francisco Aznar; Santiago Celma Pueyo; Belén Calvo Lopez

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 116.29

    Covering the optical receiver technologies suitable for integration into standard CMOS gadgetry, this volume details the complete design flow from building blocks to system level, and explains underlying concepts such as the characteristics of a data signal. more...

  • The Finances of Engineering Companiesby Alan James Reynolds

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 69.95

    Students from all engineering disciplines, as well as professional engineers, need to understand company finance in order to work effectively within commercial organisations. Corporate finance is therefore an essential aspect of the education of every engineer. Written by an engineer, this innovative book provides a course in company finance, illustrated... more...

  • Optical Fibersby Takanori Okoshi

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Optical Fibers describes the theoretical basis?electromagnetic theories?of transmission characteristics of optical fibers. The material and fabrication technologies are not described systematically, but only briefly where necessary to assist comprehension of the transmission characteristics. This book comprises 11 chapters, with an introductory chapter... more...

  • Anisotropic and Nonlinear Optical Waveguidesby C.G. Someda; G.I. Stegeman

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Dielectric optical waveguides have been investigated for more than two decades. In the last ten years they have had the unique position of being simultaneously the backbone of a very practical and fully developed technology, as well as an extremely exciting area of basic, forefront research. Existing waveguides can be divided into two sets: one... more...
