    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Thin-Film Optical Filters, Third Editionby H. Angus MacLeod

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 173.95

    Very common optical coatings are those that give the faint, reflected color to the lenses in cameras, binoculars, and spectacles. The thin metal layer that makes the difference between a mirror and a simple sheet of glass is an optical coating. But, optical coatings are used in many more applications-a particularly important current one being the splitting... more...

  • Angle-of-Arrival Estimation Using Radar Interferometryby E. Jeff Holder

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2013; US$ 125.00

    The book focuses on angle-of-arrival estimation using radar interferometry and provides a unique perspective to angle estimation. more...

  • Atom Interferometryby Paul R. Berman

    Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 290.00

    The field of atom interferometry has expanded rapidly in recent years, and todays research laboratories are using atom interferometers both as inertial sensors and for precision measurements. Many researchers also use atom interferometry as a means of researching fundamental questions in quantum mechanics. Atom Interferometry contains contributions... more...

  • Basics of Interferometryby P. Hariharan

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    This book is for those who have some knowledge of optics, but little or no previous experience in interferometry. Accordingly, the carefully designed presentation helps readers easily find and assimilate the interferometric techniques they need for precision measurements. Mathematics is held to a minimum, and the topics covered are also summarized... more...

  • Contact Lens Design Tablesby Anthony Musset; Janet Stone

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    Contact Lens Design Tables presents tables for the determination of surface radii of curvature of hard contact lenses to give a required axial edge lift. The book also offers method of use of these tables to achieve the best approach to their use in lens design. These tables will be helpful to contact lens practitioners and manufacturers. more...

  • Detection of Lightby George Rieke

    Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 84.00

    A comprehensive overview of important approaches to photon detection from ultraviolet to submillimeter spectral regions. more...
