    A state of the art presentation of important advances in the field of digital holography, detailing advances related to fundamentals of digital holography, in-line holography applied to fluid mechanics, digital color holography, digital holographic microscopy, infrared holography, special techniques in full field vibrometry and inverse problems in... more...

  • Advances in Nonlinear Opticsby Xianfeng Chen; Guoquan Zhang; Heping Zeng; Qi Guo; Weilong She; Shanghai Jiao Tong University Press

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 168.00

    This book presents an overview of the state of the art of nonlinear optics from weak light nonlinear optics, ultrafast nonlinear optics to electro-optical theory and applications. Topics range from the fundamental studies of the interaction between matter and radiation to the development of devices, components, and systems of tremendous... more...

  • Non-Linear Optical Response in Atoms, Molecules and Clustersby Vladimir Goncharov

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99

    The aim of this brief is to present, in sufficient detail, a non-perturbative technique for calculating optical hyperpolarizabilities. The ability to efficiently compute hyperpolarizabilities, for a variety of different molecular systems, makes this brief invaluable for those engaged in the computational design of new electro-optical materials. The... more...

  • Quantum Optics for Beginnersby Zbigniew Ficek; Mohamed Ridza Wahiddin

    Pan Stanford 2014; US$ 129.95

    Atomic correlations have been studied in physics for over 50 years and known as collective effects until recently when they came to be recognized as a source of entanglement. This is the first book that contains detailed and comprehensive analysis of two currently extensively studied subjects of atomic and quantum physics?atomic correlations and their... more...

  • Integrated Devices for Quantum Information with Polarization Encoded Qubitsby Linda Sansoni

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    Quantum information science has found great experimental success by exploiting single photons. To date, however, the majority of quantum optical experiments use large-scale (bulk) optical elements bolted down to an optical bench, an approach that ultimately limits the complexity and stability of the quantum circuits required for quantum science and... more...

  • Laser Beam Propagationby Andrew Forbes

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 162.95

    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

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 121.95

    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...

  • Polarized Light and Optical Measurementby D. N. Clarke; J.F. Grainger; D. Ter Haar

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    Polarized Light and Optical Measurement is a five-chapter book that begins with a self-consistent conceptual picture of the phenomenon of polarization. Chapter 2 describes a number of interactions of light and matter used in devising optical elements in polarization studies. Specific optical elements are given in Chapter 3. The last two chapters explore... more...
