  • Characterization of Optical Materialsby Gregory J. Exarhos

    Momentum Press 2010; US$ 98.00

    Optical materials are prized for their properties such as reflection, refraction, absorption, emission, scattering, and diffraction of light in wavelengths ranging from 100 nm to 10 mm. Because small surface or atomic structure defects can have significant affects on those properties, characterization techniques that are sensitive to structures at... more...

  • Physical Properties and Data of Optical Materialsby Moriaki Wakaki; Takehisa Shibuya; Keiei Kudo(deceased)

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 194.95

    Research and applications in optical engineering require careful selection of materials. With such a large and varied array to choose from, it is important to understand a material's physical and optical properties before making a selection. Providing a convenient, concise, and logically organized collection of information, Physical Properties and... more...

  • Spectroscopic Properties of Rare Earths in Optical Materialsby Guokui Liu; Bernard Jacquier

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 359.00

    Aimed at researchers and graduate students, this book provides up-to-date information about the electronic interactions that impact the optical properties of rare earth ions in solids.
