  • 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...

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

    Wiley 2012; US$ 114.00

    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...
