  • Laser-Induced Damage in Optical Materialsby Detlev Ristau

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 149.95

    Section I?Fundamentals Laser-Induced Damage Phenomena in Optics: A Historical Overview; MJ Soileau Laser-Induced Damage by Thermal Effects; Roger M Wood Defect-Induced Damage; Semyon Papernov Self-Focusing and Nonlinear Effects; Vitaly Gruzdev Femtosecond Laser-Induced Damage in Dielectric Materials; Luke A Emmert and... more...

  • Atom Interferometryby G.M. Tino; M.A. Kasevich

    IOS Press 2014; US$ 290.00

    Since atom interferometers were first realized about 20 years ago, atom interferometry has had many applications in basic and applied science, and has been used to measure gravity acceleration, rotations and fundamental physical quantities with unprecedented precision. Future applications range from tests of general relativity to the development of... more...

  • Auf dem Weg zur Verantwortungsgesellschaftby Sebastian Demel

    Wallstein Verlag 2014; US$ 36.01

    Stiftungen als Akteure des gesellschaftlichen Wandels: bürgerschaftliches Engagement gegen soziale Missstände und Obrigkeit. Die deutsche Gesellschaft wandelte sich nach der Reichsgründung 1871 rasant. Industrielle Fertigung, technische Neuentwicklungen und wissenschaftlicher Fortschritt bescherten ungeahnten Wohlstand. Doch nicht alle profitierten... 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...

  • Optical Properties of Advanced Materialsby Yoshinobu Aoyagi; Kotaro Kajikawa; Koki Takanashi; Shin-ya Koshihara; Yoichi Takanishi; Katsuhiko Fujita; Shin-ichiro Inoue

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    In the last decade, optically functionalized materials have developed rapidly, from bulk matters to structured forms. Now we have a rich variety of attractive advanced materials. They are applied to optical and electrical devices that support the information communication technology in the mid 21-th century. Accordingly, it is quite important to have... more...

  • GaP Heteroepitaxy on Si(100)by Henning Döscher

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Epitaxial integration of III-V semiconductors on silicon substrates has been desired over decades for high application potential in microelectronics, photovoltaics, and beyond. The performance of optoelectronic devices is still severely impaired by critical defect mechanisms driven by the crucial polar-on-nonpolar heterointerface. This thesis reports... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
