  • Handbook of Nonlinear Opticsby Richard L. Sutherland

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 304.00

    Examining classic theories, experimental methods, and practical formulas for exploration of the core topics in nonlinear optics, the second edition of this acclaimed text was extensively revised to reflect recent advances in the analysis and modification of material properties for application in frequency conversion, optical switching and limiting,... more...

  • Modern Spectroscopyby J. Michael Hollas

    Wiley 2013; US$ 167.00

    The latest edition of this highly acclaimed title introduces the reader to a wide range of spectroscopies, and includes both the background theory and applications to structure determination and chemical analysis.  It covers rotational, vibrational, electronic, photoelectron and Auger spectroscopy, as well as EXAFs and the theory of lasers and... more...

  • Femtosecond Laser Spectroscopyby Peter Hannaford

    Springer 2005; US$ 199.00

    With recent major breakthroughs in ultrafast laser technology and femtosecond nonlinear spectroscopic techiques, Femtosecond Laser Spectroscopy is currently a burgeoning field in many branches of science, including physics, chemistry, biology, and materials science. There is an urgent need for researchers and postgraduate students to have a volume... more...

  • Basics of Holographyby P. Hariharan

    Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 64.00

    An excellent introduction to holography for students and researchers in science and engineering. more...

  • Spectroscopy of Emerging Materialsby Eric C. Faulques; Dale L. Perry; Andrei V. Yeremenko

    Springer 2004; US$ 169.00

    A comprehensive discussion of the key role of modern spectroscopic investigations in interdisciplinary materials science and engineering, covering emerging materials that are either absolutely novel or well-known materials with recently discovered, exciting properties. more...

  • Cavity Quantum Electrodynamicsby Sergio M. Dutra

    Wiley 2005; US$ 150.00

    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...

  • Lenses and wavesby Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis

    Springer 2004; US$ 209.00

    In 1690, Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) published Traité de la Lumière, containing his renowned wave theory of light. It is considered a landmark in seventeenth-century science, for the way Huygens mathematized the corpuscular nature of light and his probabilistic conception of natural knowledge. This book discusses the development of Huygens' wave... more...

  • 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

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 62.95

    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...

  • Thin-Film Optical Filters, Third Editionby

    Taylor and Francis 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...
