  • Optical Precursorsby JF Chen; Heejeong Jeong; MMT Loy; Shengwang Du

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    Ever since Einstein’s special relativity in 1905, the principle of invariant light speed in vacuum has been attracting attention from a wide range of disciplines. How to interpret the principle of light speed? Is light referred to continuous light, or light pulse with definite boundaries? Recent discovery of superluminal medium triggered vigorous... more...

  • Quantum Optics for Engineersby F.J. Duarte

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 99.95

    Quantum Optics for Engineers provides a transparent and methodical introduction to quantum optics via the Dirac's bra?ket notation with an emphasis on practical applications and basic aspects of quantum mechanics such as Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Schrodinger's equation. Self-contained and using mainly first-year calculus and algebra... more...

  • Nonlinear Optical Materials: Principles and Applicationsby V. Degiorgio; C. Flytzanis

    IOS Press 1995; US$ 189.00

    Nonlinear optical materials play a pivotal role in the future evolution of nonlinear optics in general and its impact in technology and industrial applications in particular. The progress in nonlinear optics has been tremendous since the first demonstration of an all-optical nonlinear effect in the early sixties, but until recently the main visible... more...
