  • Polarization Mode Dispersionby Andrea Galtarossa; Curtis R. Menyuk

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 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...

  • Extreme Nonlinear Opticsby Martin Wegener

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 139.00

    Following the birth of the laser in 1960, the field of "nonlinear optics" rapidly emerged.Today, laser intensities and pulse durations are readily available, for which the concepts and approximations of traditional nonlinear optics no longer apply. In this regime of "extreme nonlinear optics," a large variety of novel and unusual... more...

  • Linear Ray and Wave Optics in Phase Spaceby Amalia Torre

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 235.00

    Ray, wave and quantum concepts are central to diverse and seemingly incompatible models of light. Each model particularizes a specific ''manifestation'' of light, and then corresponds to adequate physical assumptions and formal approximations, whose domains of applicability are well-established. Accordingly each model comprises its own set of geometric... more...

  • The Physics of Invisibilityby Martin Beech

    Springer 2011; US$ 29.95

    The ability is see is fundamental to our very existence. How true our perceptions really are depends upon many factors, and not least is our understanding of what light is and how it interacts with matter. It was said that the camera, the icon of light recording instruments, never lies, and in the day of the glass plate and celluloid roll-film this... more...

  • Optical Interferometry for Biology and Medicineby David D. Nolte

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    This book presents the fundamental physics of optical interferometry as applied to biophysical, biological and medical research. Interference is at the core of many types of optical detection and is a powerful probe of cellular and tissue structure in interfererence microscopy and in optical coherence tomography. It is also the root cause of speckle... more...

  • The Quality of Measurementsby A.E. Fridman

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    This monograph and translation from the Russian describes in detail and comments on the fundamentals of metrology. The basic concepts of metrology, the principles of the International System of Units SI, the theory of measurement uncertainty, the new methodology of estimation of measurement accuracy on the basis of the uncertainty concept, as well... more...
