  • Laser Beam Propagationby Andrew Forbes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    How do laser beams propagate? Innovative discoveries involving laser beams and their propagation properties are at the heart of Laser Beam Propagation: Generation and Propagation of Customized Light . This book captures the essence of laser beam propagation. Divided into three parts, it explores the fundamentals of how laser beams propagate, and... more...

  • Strong Light-Matter Couplingby Alexia Auffeves; Dario Gerace; Maxime Richard

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 140.00

    The physics of strong light-matter coupling has been addressed in different scientific communities over the last three decades. Since the early eighties, atoms coupled to optical and microwave cavities have led to pioneering demonstrations of cavity quantum electrodynamics, Gedanken experiments, and building blocks for quantum information processing,... more...

  • Single-Photon Generation and Detectionby Alan Migdall; Sergey V. Polyakov; Jingyun Fan; Joshua C. Bienfang

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 215.00

    Single-photon generation and detection is at the forefront of modern optical physics research. This book is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the current status of single-photon techniques and research methods in the spectral region from the visible to the infrared. The use of single photons, produced on demand with well-defined quantum... 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...

  • Precision Interferometry in a New Shapeby Paul Fulda

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    With his Ph.D. thesis, presented here in the format of a 'Springer Theses', Paul Fulda won the 2012 GWIC thesis prize awarded by the Gravitational Wave International Committee. The impact of thermal noise on future gravitational wave detectors depends on the size and shape of the interrogating laser beam. It had been known since 2006 that, in theory,... more...

  • Field Guide to Nonlinear Opticsby Peter E. Powers

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 36.00

    This Field Guide is designed for those looking for a condensed and concise source of key concepts, equations, and techniques for nonlinear optics. Topics covered include technologically important effects, recent developments in nonlinear optics, and linear optical properties central to nonlinear phenomena. The focus of each section is based on my research... more...

  • 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...
