  • Opticsby Kailash K. Sharma

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 107.00

    Optical technology is essential to communications and medical technology. K.K. Sharma has written a comprehensive volume on optics. Beginning with introductory ideas and equations, Sharma takes the reader through the world of optics detailing problems encountered, advanced subjects, and actual applications. Elegantly written, this book rigorously examines... more...

  • Progress in Opticsby Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 240.00

    In the thirty-seven years that have gone by since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science. At the time of inception of this series, the first lasers were only just becoming operational, holography was in its infancy, subjects such as fiber optics, integrated optics and optoelectronics... more...

  • Progress in Opticsby Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 240.00

    In the fourty-six years that have gone by since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science. The volumes in this series which have appeared up to now contain more than 300 review articles by distinguished research workers, which have become permanent records for many important developments.... more...

  • Patterns of Lightby Steven Beeson; James W. Mayer

    Springer New York 2007; Not Available

    Light is all around us. Vision is our dominant sense, and we are richly rewarded with a palette of colors from red to violet. Our eyes do not detect the l- energy, long-wavelength infrared (IR) radiation, but we know it exists from d- cussions of war applications and televised images of guided weapons targets. Our eyes do not detect the higher-energy... more...

  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95

    Volume XXXII contains a number of review articles on recent developments in optics and related subjects. The first article presents an account of guided wave optics on silicon which is a subject of considerable current interest in the broad field of integrated optics, likely to influence the design and fabrication of various optical components. Chapter... more...

  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 1994; US$ 72.95

    This volume contains six review articles dealing with topics of current research interest in optics and in related fields. The first article deals with the so-called embedding method, which has found useful applications in the study of wave propagation in random media. The second article presents a review of an interesting class of non-linear optical... more...

  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 225.00

    This volume presents six articles describing theoretical and experimental research of interest in optics. The articles review applications of the Wigner distribution function in optics and optoelectronics, examine the mathematical foundations and the applicability of Kramers-Kronig relations to data inversion in linear and nonlinear optical spectroscopy... more...

  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 225.00

    This volume contains six review articles on a range of topics of research in optics. The first article deals with various nonlinear optical phenomena in stratified media, showing that resonances which arise from stratification are of considerable importance for achieving low-threshold nonlinear optical devices. It also includes a study of optical... more...

  • Progress in Optics by Emil Wolf

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 225.00

    Volume XXXIX presents five review articles dealing with topics of current research interest in optics. The book opens with a chapter dealing with the analytic extension of the concept of geometrical optics rays into the complex domain. The extension is intimately related to inhomogeneous (evanescent) waves, which are currently of particular interest... more...
