  • Fabrication of Complex Optical Componentsby Ekkard Brinksmeier; Oltmann Riemer; Ralf M. Gläbe

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 219.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • Handbook of Moire Measurementby C.A. Walker

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 220.00

    Since its development in the late 1970s, the Moiré Fringe method has become a standard technique for the measurement of the behavior of materials and structures. Edited by one of the co-inventors of the technique, the Handbook of Moiré Measurement brings together a series of extended case studies from recognized experts in the field. The emphasis is... more...

  • Introduction to Complex Mediums for Optics and Electromagneticsby Werner S. Weiglhofer; Akhlesh Lakhtakia

    SPIE 2003; US$ 94.00

    Complex-mediums electromagnetics (CME) describes the study of electromagnetic fields in materials with complicated response properties. This truly multidisciplinary field commands the attentions of scientists from physics and optics to electrical and electronic engineering, from chemistry to materials science, to applied mathematics, biophysics, and... more...

  • An Introduction to the Theory of Diffractionby C. J. Ball; G. E. Bacon

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    An Introduction to the Theory of Diffraction presents the fundamentals of diffraction theory. This book discusses other topics, such as absorption in cylindrical or slab-shaped specimens, which do not closely involve the fundamentals of diffraction. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamentals of wave motion... more...

  • The Method of the Generalised Eikonalby Michael V. Vesnik

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 252.00

    The diffraction theory describes scattering mechanism for waves of various physical nature, scattered on objects of different shapes and composed of different materials. Using the diffraction theory, one can study a number of important effects connected with wave propagation, and create objects with given properties. 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 Designby Max J. Riedl

    SPIE 2009; US$ 47.00

    This text is written for engineers and scientists who have some experience in the field of optics and want to know more about the details and derivations of equations used in optical design. Organized by topic, the book begins with the fundamental law of geometrical optics, Snell's law of refraction, and states the paraxial ray trace equations,... more...

  • Optical Design for Visual Systemsby Bruce H. Walker

    SPIE 2005; US$ 44.00

    This tutorial explains the human eye, its function, and performance limits from the perspective of an experienced optical engineer and lens designer. It is concise and readable, with examples and data, and is intended for students, practicing engineers, and technology users. more...
