  • 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...

  • 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

    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...

  • Diffraction, Fourier Optics and Imagingby Okan K. Ersoy

    Wiley 2006; US$ 167.00

    This book presents current theories of diffraction, imaging, and related topics based on Fourier analysis and synthesis techniques, which are essential for understanding, analyzing, and synthesizing modern imaging, optical communications and networking, as well as micro/nano systems. Applications covered include tomography; magnetic resonance imaging;... more...

  • Basics of Interferometryby P. Hariharan

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 107.00

    Optical interferometry is used in communications, medical imaging, astonomy, and structural measurement. With the use of an interferometer engineers and scientists are able to complete surface inspections of micromachined surfaces and semiconductors. Medical technicians are able to give more consise diagnoses with the employ of interferometers in microscopy,... more...

  • Fundamentals of Contemporary Mass Spectrometryby Chhabil Dass

    Wiley 2007; US$ 160.00

    Modern mass spectrometry - the instrumentation and applications in diverse fields Mass spectrometry has played a pivotal role in a variety of scientific disciplines. Today it is an integral part of proteomics and drug discovery process. Fundamentals of Contemporary Mass Spectrometry gives readers a concise and authoritative overview of modern... more...

  • Optics and Photonicsby F. Graham Smith; Terry A. King; Dan Wilkins

    Wiley 2007; US$ 251.00

    The Second Edition of this successful textbook provides a clear, well-written introduction to both the fundamental principles of optics and the key aspects of photonics to show how the subject has developed in the last few decades, leading to many modern applications. Optics and Photonics: An Introduction, Second Edition thus provides a complete... more...

  • Free And Guided Optical Beamsby Sergio Martellucci; Massimo Santarsiero

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 118.00

    Optical beams are electromagnetic waves that remain essentially concentrated around a mean axis upon free propagation or that are guided by suitable structures. The study of these beams has existed long ago and since then this field has been a focus of active investigation. However, in recent years, the interest on optical beams has further increased,... more...

  • Polarization Mode Dispersionby Andrea Galtarossa; Curtis R. Menyuk

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 339.00

    the model for low-PMD ?bers; Nicolas Gisin covered the increasingly important topic of the interaction of PMD with polarization dependent loss. Other topics that were included in the school were: ?PMD models,? which was covered byAntonio Mecozzi and Mark Shtaif; ?Interaction of PMD with nonlinearity and chromatic dispersion,? which was covered by Curtis... more...
