  • 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$ 129.00

    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$ 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...

  • Engineering Project Appraisalby Martin Rogers; Aidan Duffy

    Wiley 2012; US$ 69.95

    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...

  • Ultra-Fast Fiber Lasersby Le Nguyen Binh; Nam Quoc Ngo

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 154.95

    Ultrashort pulses in mode-locked lasers are receiving focused attention from researchers looking to apply them in a variety of fields, from optical clock technology to measurements of the fundamental constants of nature and ultrahigh-speed optical communications. Ultrashort pulses are especially important for the next generation of ultrahigh-speed... more...

  • Optical Waveguiding and Applied Photonicsby Alessandro Massaro; Aimé Lay-Ekuakille

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Optoelectronics--technology based on applications light such as micro/nano quantum electronics, photonic devices, laser for measurements and detection--has become an important field of research. Many applications and physical problems concerning optoelectronics are analyzed in Optical Waveguiding and Applied Photonics.The book is organized in order... 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...
