  • The Physics of Invisibilityby Martin Beech

    Springer 2011; US$ 29.95

    The ability is see is fundamental to our very existence. How true our perceptions really are depends upon many factors, and not least is our understanding of what light is and how it interacts with matter. It was said that the camera, the icon of light recording instruments, never lies, and in the day of the glass plate and celluloid roll-film this... more...

  • Brief History of Light, And Those That Lit The Wayby R J Weiss

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 94.00

    From Leonardo to Oppenheimer, from candles to lasers, from cave drawings to cinema, from Stonehenge to quantum mechanics, from Genesis to the Big Bang, light has filled our thoughts, our way of life, our aesthetics, our technology, and our means for survival. Richard Weiss leads us along these paths over the past 500 light years. The way is lit by... more...

  • Lenses and wavesby Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis

    Springer 2004; US$ 209.00

    In 1690, Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) published Traité de la Lumière, containing his renowned wave theory of light. It is considered a landmark in seventeenth-century science, for the way Huygens mathematized the corpuscular nature of light and his probabilistic conception of natural knowledge. This book discusses the development of Huygens' wave... more...

  • Light and Darkby David Greene

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 45.95

    An entertaining, instructive, diverse, and unusual book, Light and Dark: An Exploration in Science, Nature, Art and Technology encompasses a wide range of topics not normally found in one book. With more than 100 diagrams, graphs, and figures, the subjects discussed include the history of artificial lighting, eclipse cycles, light-sensitive eyeglasses,... more...

  • Free And Guided Optical Beamsby Sergio Martellucci; Massimo Santarsiero

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 193.00

    Optical beams are electromagnetic waves that remain essentially concentrated around a mean axis upon free propagation or that are guided by suitable structures. The study of these beams has existed long ago and since then this field has been a focus of active investigation. However, in recent years, the interest on optical beams has further increased,... more...

  • Frontiers in Planar Lightwave Circuit Technologyby Siegfried Janz; Jiri Ctyroky; Stoyan Tanev

    Springer 2005; US$ 129.00

    Provides detailed overviews of experimental and theoretical work in high index contrast waveguide systems, micro-optical resonators, nonlinear optics, and advanced optical simulation methods. This work also presents articles describing emerging applications of integrated optics for medical and biological applications. more...

  • Patterns of Lightby Steven Beeson; James W. Mayer

    Springer 2007; US$ 99.00

    Begins by addressing properties of light as seen in the everyday world: events such as refraction in a pool, lenses in the form of glasses, the colors of objects, atmospheric events, and more. This title includes chapters that explain these events at the atomic and subatomic level. more...

  • Nicole Oresme's De visione stellarum (On Seeing the Stars)by Dan Burton

    BRILL 2006; US$ 144.00

    A translation of "On Seeing the Stars", Nicole Oresme's 14th-century treatise on atmospheric refraction, in which Oresme uses optics and infinitesimals to help solve the problem of astronomy, while proposing that light travels along a curve through the atmosphere. more...
