Polarization (Light)

Most popular at the top

  • Polarization in spectral linesby E. Landi Degl'Innocenti

    Springer 2004; US$ 269.00

    The scientific research based on spectropolarimetric techniques is undergoing a phase of rapid growth. Instruments of unprecedented sensitivity are nowadays available, particularly for solar observations. To fully exploit the rich diagnostic content of such observations, it is necessary to understand the physical mechanisms involved in the generation... more...

  • Polarised Light in Science and Natureby J. David Pye

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 65.95

    We humans cannot see when light is polarized and this leads to unfortunate misapprehensions about this aspect of nature. Even scientists who should know better often assume that it is an obscure topic of specialized interest in only a few rather isolated areas. In fact, it is a universal feature of our world and most natural light is at least partially... more...

  • Polarized Light in Liquid Crystals and Polymersby Toralf Scharf

    Wiley 2007; US$ 150.00

    Toralf Scharf is Senior Scientist at the University of Neuchâtel in Switzerland. His current research interests concern liquid crystal optics for display applications, implementation of organic birefringent optical materials into solid optical devices, and fabrication and characterization of micro-optics including diffractive and refractive... more...

  • Polarization Mode Dispersionby Andrea Galtarossa; Curtis R. Menyuk

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 339.00

    Contains a series of tutorial essays on polarization mode dispersion (PMD) by the leading experts in the field. This book covers topics such as mathematical representation of PMD, how to properly model PMD in numerical simulations, how to accurately measure PMD, how to infer fiber properties from polarization measurements, and more. more...

  • Characterization of Partially Polarized Light Fieldsby R. Martinez-Herrero; P.M. Mejias; G. Piquero

    Springer 2009; US$ 159.00

    Includes the authors' own contributions to Polarization issues. more...

  • Field Guide to Polarizationby Edward Collett

    SPIE 2005; US$ 36.00

    The polarization of light is one of the most remarkable phenomena in nature and has led to numerous discoveries and applications. The nature and mathematical formulation of unpolarized light and partially polarized light were not readily forthcoming until the 1950s, when questions about polarized light and the mathematical tools to deal with it began... more...

  • Polarized Light, Third Editionby Dennis H. Goldstein

    CRC Press 2010; US$ 243.00

    Polarized light is a pervasive influence in our world?and scientists and engineers in a variety of fields require the tools to understand, measure, and apply it to their advantage. Offering an in-depth examination of the subject and a description of its applications, Polarized Light, Third Edition serves as a comprehensive self-study tool complete... more...

  • Polarized Light, Revised and Expandedby Dennis Goldstein; Dennis H. Goldstein

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 267.95

    Polarized Light, Second Edition explores polarized light, its production, and its use, facilitating self-study without prior knowledge of Maxwell's equations. This comprehensive second edition includes more than 2500 thoroughly updated figures and equations for easier understanding and application across various industries. It features new chapters... more...

  • Optical Remote Sensingby Walter G. Egan

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 319.00
