  • Light and Opticsby Abdul Al-Azzawi

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 132.95

    Since the invention of the laser, our fascination with the photon has led to one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing fields of technology. As the reality of all-optical systems quickly comes into focus, it is more important than ever to have a thorough understanding of light and the optical components used to control it. Comprising chapters drawn... more...

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

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 119.75

    Covering a wealth of optically functional substances, from semiconducting to soft materials, the authors of this text are leading-edge researchers who address the latest developments in this fast-moving field, including spintronics and photonic metamaterials. more...

  • The Physics of Invisibilityby Martin Beech

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 27.21

    Introducing the scientifically new technology of "invisibility cloaking," this book shows how light can be manipulated to produce a distortion of images, causing them to vanish. The authors explore current discussion of the use and the ethics of invisibility. more...

  • Patterns of Lightby Steven Beeson; James W. Mayer

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 92.53

    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...

  • Principles of Opticsby Max Born; Emil Wolf; A. B. Bhatia; P. C. Clemmow; D. Gabor; A. R. Stokes; A. M. Taylor; P. A. Wayman; W. L. Wilcock

    Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 84.00 US$ 68.88

    Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century, and probably the most influential book in optics published in the past 40 years. The new edition is the first ever thoroughly revised and expanded edition of this standard text. Among the new material, much of which is not available in any other optics text, is a section... more...

  • Infrared and Millimeter Waves V14by Kenneth J. Button

    Elsevier Science 1985; US$ 72.95

    Infrared and Millimeter Waves, Volume 14: Millimeter Components and Techniques, Part V is concerned with millimeter-wave guided propagation and integrated circuits. In addition to millimeter-wave planar integrated circuits and subsystems, this book covers transducer configurations and integrated-circuit techniques, antenna arrays, optoelectronic devices,... more...

  • Epioptics-10by Antonio Cricenti

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 83.00

    The book is aimed at assessing the capabilities of state-of-the-art optical techniques in elucidating the fundamental electronic and structural properties of semiconductor and metal surfaces, interfaces, thin layers, and layer structures, and assessing the usefulness of these techniques for optimization of high quality multilayer samples through feedback... more...

  • Fundamentals of Light Sources and Lasersby Mark Csele

    Wiley 2011; US$ 165.00 US$ 143.00

    A comprehensive introduction to the burgeoning field of photonics The field of photonics is finding increasing applications across a broad range of industries. While many other books provide an overview of the subject, Fundamentals of Light Sources and Lasers closes a clear gap in the current literature by concentrating on the principles of laser... more...
