  • The Theory of Scintillation with Applications in Remote Sensingby Charles Rino

    Wiley 2011; US$ 118.00

    In order to truly understand data signals transmitted by satellite, one must understand scintillation theory in addition to well established theories of EM wave propagation and scattering. Scintillation is a nuisance in satellite EM communications, but it has stimulated numerous theoretical developments with science applications. This book not only... more...

  • Optical materialsby Roger. M. Wood

    The Institute of Materials. Minerals and Mining 1993; US$ 100.00

    Introduction; molecular and crystal structure; physical properties; optical properties of linear materials; optically non-linear materials; laser materials; detector materials; fibre / integrated optics; liquid crystals; power handling capability of optical materials more...

  • Introduction to Imaging Spectrometersby William L. Wolfe

    SPIE 1997; US$ 44.00

    The increased interest in imaging spectroscopy has arisen largely for technical reasons. This Tutorial Text first reviews the required background in optics, radiometry, imaging, spectral sensing and focal plane arrays. Then the principles of these subjects are applied to several specific problems to illustrate the way in which such instruments can... more...

  • Optical Interferometry for Biology and Medicineby David D. Nolte

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 179.00

    Interference is at the core of many types of optical detection and is a powerful probe of cellular and tissue structure. This book presents the fundamental physics of optical interferometry as applied to biophysical, biological and medical research. more...

  • Ring Interferometryby Grigorii B. Malykin; Vera I. Pozdnyakova; Alexei Zhurov

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 182.00

    This monograph is devoted to the creation of a comprehensive formalism for quantitative description of polarized modes? linear interaction in modern single-mode optic fibers. The theory of random connections between polarized modes, developed in the monograph, allows calculations of the zero shift deviations for a fiber ring interferometer.... more...

  • Image-Based Geometric Modeling and Mesh Generationby Yongjie (Jessica) Zhang

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 129.00

    This book shows how image-based geometric modeling and mesh generation integrates image processing, geometric modeling and mesh generation with finite element method (FEM) to solve problems in computational biomedicine, materials sciences and engineering. 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...
