  • Cavity Quantum Electrodynamicsby Sergio M. Dutra

    Wiley 2005; US$ 160.00 US$ 138.67

    What happens to light when it is trapped in a box? Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics addresses a fascinating question in physics: what happens to light, and in particular to its interaction with matter, when it is trapped inside a box? With the aid of a model-building approach, readers discover the answer to this question and come to appreciate its important... more...

  • Foundations Of Photonic Crystal Fibresby Frédéric Zolla; Gilles Renversez; André Nicolet; Boris Kuhlmey; Sébastien Guenneau

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 100.00

    This book aims to provide expert guidance to researchers experienced in classical technology, as well as to those new to the field. A variety of perspectives on Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCFs) is presented together with a thorough treatment of the theoretical, physical and mathematical foundations of the optics of PCFs. The range of expertise of the... more...

  • Handbook of Moire Measurementby C.A. Walker

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 220.00

    Since its development in the late 1970s, the Moiré Fringe method has become a standard technique for the measurement of the behavior of materials and structures. Edited by one of the co-inventors of the technique, the Handbook of Moiré Measurement brings together a series of extended case studies from recognized experts in the field. The emphasis is... more...

  • Thin-Film Optical Filters, Third Editionby H. Angus MacLeod

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 173.95

    Very common optical coatings are those that give the faint, reflected color to the lenses in cameras, binoculars, and spectacles. The thin metal layer that makes the difference between a mirror and a simple sheet of glass is an optical coating. But, optical coatings are used in many more applications-a particularly important current one being the splitting... more...

  • Light and Darkby David Greene

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 47.95

    An entertaining, instructive, diverse, and unusual book, Light and Dark: An Exploration in Science, Nature, Art and Technology encompasses a wide range of topics not normally found in one book. With more than 100 diagrams, graphs, and figures, the subjects discussed include the history of artificial lighting, eclipse cycles, light-sensitive eyeglasses,... 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$ 155.00 US$ 134.33

    Polarized Light in Liquid Crystals and Polymers deals with the linear optics of birefringent materials, such as liquid crystals and polymers, and surveys light propagation in such media with special attention to applications. It is unique in treating light propagation in micro- and nanostructured birefringent optical elements, such as lenses and... more...
