  • Epioptics-10by Antonio Cricenti

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 135.00

    The book is aimed at assessing the capabilities of state-of-the-art optical techniques in elucidating the fundamental electronic and structural properties of semiconductor and metal surfaces, interfaces, thin layers, and layer structures, and assessing the usefulness of these techniques for optimization of high quality multilayer samples through feedback... more...

  • Field Guide to Diffractive Opticsby Yakov Soskind

    SPIE 2011; US$ 36.00

    This SPIE Field Guide provides the operational principles and established terminology of diffractive optics as well as a comprehensive overview of the main types of diffractive optics components. An emphasis is placed on the qualitative explanation of the diffraction phenomenon by the use of field distributions and graphs, providing the basis for understanding... more...

  • Characterization of Optical Materialsby Gregory J. Exarhos

    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...

  • Spin Squeezing and Non-linear Atom Interferometry with Bose-Einstein Condensatesby Christian Grob

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Interferometry, the most precise measurement technique known today, exploits the wave-like nature of the atoms or photons in the interferometer. As expected from the laws of quantum mechanics, the granular, particle-like features of the individually independent atoms or photons are responsible for the precision limit, the shot noise limit. However... more...

  • Fabrication of Complex Optical Componentsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 199.00

    This book explores the current state of the processing steps called a 'process chain,' covering all steps from mold design, advanced machining and coating of molds, to the replication and final precision measurement of the quality of the optical components. more...

  • Modern Diffraction Methodsby E. J. Mittemeijer; U. Welzel

    Wiley 2013; US$ 196.00

    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...

  • Optical System Designby Rudolf Kingslake

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Optical System Design covers the basic knowledge of optics and the flow of light through an optical system. This book is organized into 16 chapters that deal with various components of an optical system, from light and images to spectroscopic apparatus. The book first discusses the simple components of an optical system, including its light, lens,... more...

  • Stray Light Analysis and Controlby Eric Fest

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 47.00

    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 Proper Care of Opticsby Robert Schalck

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2013; US$ 46.00

    If you want the best performance from your optics, they need to be properly maintained. This book describes the cleaning, handling, and storage methods used by professional technicians to keep optics in top condition. It is written for a diverse audience, from first-time optical cleaners to assembly technicians and seasoned engineers looking to expand... more...

  • Chalcogenide Glassesby J-L Adam; X. Zhang

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 330.00

    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...
