- Momentum Press 2010; US$ 98.00
Optical materials are prized for their properties such as reflection, refraction, absorption, emission, scattering, and diffraction of light in wavelengths ranging from 100 nm to 10 mm. Because small surface or atomic structure defects can have significant affects on those properties, characterization techniques that are sensitive to structures at... more...

The role of diffraction methods for the solid-state sciences has been pivotal to determining the (micro)structure of a material. Particularly, the expanding activities in materials science have led to the development of new methods for analysis by diffraction. This book offers an authoritative overview of the new developments in the field of analysis... more...

Stray light is defined as unwanted light in an optical system, a familiar concept for anyone who has taken a photograph with the sun in or near their camera's field of view. This book addresses stray light terminology, radiometry, and the physics of stray light mechanisms, such as surface roughness scatter and ghost reflections. The most-efficient... more...

The unique properties and functionalities of chalcogenide glasses make them promising materials for photonic applications. Chalcogenide glasses are transparent from the visible to the near infrared region and can be moulded into lenses or drawn into fibres. They have useful commercial applications as components for lenses for infrared cameras, and... more...
