  • Advances in Chemical Physicsby Stuart A. Rice; Myron W. Evans; I. Prigogine

    Wiley 2004; US$ 400.00

    Significant advances have occurred in the field since the previous edition, including advances in light squeezing, single photon optics, phase conjugation, and laser technology. The laser is essentially responsible for nonlinear effects and is extensively used in all branches of science, industry, and medicine. more...

  • Polarized Light, Revised and Expandedby Dennis Goldstein; Dennis H. Goldstein

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 267.95

    Polarized Light, Second Edition explores polarized light, its production, and its use, facilitating self-study without prior knowledge of Maxwell's equations. This comprehensive second edition includes more than 2500 thoroughly updated figures and equations for easier understanding and application across various industries. It features new chapters... more...

  • Optical Remote Sensingby Walter G. Egan

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 304.00

    Written by a pioneer in the field, this unique volume is the only one of its kind to explore advanced concepts in the mathematical representation of polarization, descriptors, and various optical elements used in the analysis of polarization in multiple applications. The book highlights tried and proven techniques to enhance aircraft and satellite... more...

  • Stimulated Brillouin Scatteringby M J Damzen; V Vlad; Anca Mocofanescu; V Babin

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 184.95

    Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) is the most important example of a stimulated scattering process-light scattering that occurs when the intensity of the light field itself affects the propagating medium. A phenomenon that has been known of for some 35 years in solid state laser research, it has recently become relevant in the optical fiber industry,... more...

  • Optical Scanning Holography with Matlabby Ting-Chun Poon

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 179.00

    Covers the basic principles of the optical scanning holography. This book contains tutorials, research materials, as well as ideas and insights, which are useful for graduate students, scientists, and engineers working in the field of optics and holography. more...

  • Laser Control of Atoms and Moleculesby Vladilen Letokhov

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 57.99

    This text treats laser light as a universal tool to control matter at the atomic and molecular level, one of the most exciting applications of lasers. Lasers can heat matter, cool atoms to ultra-low temperatures where they show quantum collective behaviour, and can act selectively on specific atoms and molecules for their detection and separation.... more...

  • Holographic Visionsby Sean Johnston

    Oxford University Press, UK 2006; US$ 198.99

    This is a unique history of how the new science of holography developed intellectually, socially and culturally. Based on unprecedented interviews with pioneer holographers and archival research, it shows how this far-reaching subject is a potent example of how science, technology, art and wider culture are entwined in the modern world. - ;Holography... more...

  • Quantum Dynamic Imagingby André D. Bandrauk; Misha Ivanov

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    Studying and using light or "photons" to image and then to control and transmit molecular information is among the most challenging and significant research fields to emerge in recent years. One of the fastest growing areas involves research in the temporal imaging of quantum phenomena, ranging from molecular dynamics in the femto (10**-15... more...

  • Quantum Control of Molecular Processesby Moshe Shapiro; Paul Brumer

    Wiley 2012; US$ 185.00

    Written by two of the world's leading researchers in the field, this is a systematic introduction to the fundamental principles of coherent control, and to the underlying physics and chemistry. This fully updated second edition is enhanced by 80% and covers the latest techniques and applications, including nanostructures, attosecond processes, optical... more...

  • Photoinduced Modifications of the Nonlinear Optical Response in Liquid Crystalline Azopolymersby Raquel Alicante

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Nonlinear optical (NLO) phenomena such as frequency conversion have played a key role in the development of photonic technologies. This thesis reports a detailed study of the molecular response of a large variety of push-pull organic compounds using the Second Harmonic Generation technique, which will serve as a starting point for the investigation... more...
