  • Compact Blue-Green Lasersby W. P. Risk; T. R. Gosnell; A. V. Nurmikko

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 96.00

    The first fully comprehensive, graduate-level volume on the generation and application of blue-green lasers. 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...

  • Lenses and wavesby Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis

    Springer 2004; US$ 209.00

    In 1690, Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) published Traité de la Lumičre, 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...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 163.00

    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...

  • Interferogram Analysis For Optical Testing, Second Editionby Zacarias Malacara; Manuel Servín

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 220.00

    In this day of digitalization, you can work within the technology of optics without having to fully understand the science behind it. However, for those who wish to master the science, rather than merely be its servant, it's essential to learn the nuances, such as those involved with studying fringe patterns produced by optical testing interferometers.... 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...

  • Polarized Light in Liquid Crystals and Polymersby Toralf Scharf

    Wiley 2007; US$ 150.00

    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...

  • 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...
