  • Applied Prismatic and Reflective Opticsby Dennis F. Vanderwerf

    SPIE 2010; US$ 70.00

    From the early ground and polished prism facets of glass lighthouse Fresnel lenses to modern microreplicated flexible Fresnel lenses for solar concentrators, new applications of prismatic optical components for light control are constantly being developed. In addition, innovations utilizing single and compound prismatic and reflective optical components... more...

  • Introduction to Adaptive Lensesby Hongwen Ren; Shin-Tson Wu

    Wiley 2012; US$ 118.00

    Presents readers with the basic science, technology, and applications for every type of adaptive lens An adaptive lens is a lens whose shape has been changed to a different focal length by an external stimulus such as pressure, electric field, magnetic field, or temperature. Introduction to Adaptive Lenses is the first book ever to address all... more...

  • Gradient Index Opticsby Erich Merchand

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 31.95

    Gradient Index Optics deals with the application of gradients in optical systems of classical types: gradient index lenses. The emphasis is on the theory and practice related to gradient index lenses. Only isotropic media are considered since they are the ones for which the refractive index at each point is independent of direction. Comprised of 12... more...

  • Lens Design Fundamentalsby Rudolf Kingslake

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    A large part of this book is devoted to a study of possible design procedures for various types of lens or mirror systems, with fully worked examples of each. The reader is urged to follow the logic of these examples and be sure that he understands what is happening, noticing particularly how each available degree of freedom is used to control one... more...
