  • SLOW LIGHTby Sidney Perkowitz

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 25.00

    Slow Light is a popular treatment of today's astonishing breakthroughs in the science of light. Even though we don't understand light's quantum mysteries, we can slow it to a stop and speed it up beyond its Einsteinian speed limit, 186,000 miles/sec; use it for quantum telecommunications; teleport it; manipulate it to create invisibility;... more...

  • A History of Optics from Greek Antiquity to the Nineteenth Centuryby Olivier Darrigol

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 59.99

    This book is a long-term history of optics, from early Greek theories of vision to the nineteenth-century victory of the wave theory of light. It shows how light gradually became the central entity of a domain of physics that no longer referred to the functioning of the eye; it retraces the subsequent competition between medium-based and corpuscular... more...
