    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 78.00

    The book is aimed at assessing the capabilities of state-of-the-art optical techniques in elucidating the fundamental electronic and structural properties of semiconductor and metal surfaces, interfaces, thin layers, and layer structures, and assessing the usefulness of these techniques for optimization of high quality multilayer samples through feedback... more...

  • Essentials of Modern Physics Applied to the Study of the Infraredby Armand Hadni; G. A. Boutry; P. Goerlich; T. S. Moss

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    Essentials of Modern Physics Applied to the Study of the Infrared covers topics about the essentials of modern physics. The book starts with the situation of research into the infrared and the problems to which it gives rise, and then discusses instrumentation in the infrared: optics, sources, receivers and electronics. The book describes the interaction... more...

  • Fabrication of Complex Optical Componentsby Ekkard Brinksmeier; Oltmann Riemer; Ralf M. Gläbe

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 219.00

    This book explores the current state of the processing steps called a 'process chain,' covering all steps from mold design, advanced machining and coating of molds, to the replication and final precision measurement of the quality of the optical components. more...

  • Faster Than The Speed Of Lightby Joao Magueijo

    Random House 2011; US$ 17.58

    The idea that the speed of light is a constant - at 186,000 miles per second - is one of the few scientific facts that almost everyone knows. That constant - c- also appears in the most famous of all scientific equations: e=mc2- Yet over the last few years, a small group of highly reputable young physicists have suggested that the central dogma of... more...

  • Field Guide to Binoculars and Scopesby Paul R Yoder; Daniel Vukobratovich

    SPIE 2011; US$ 36.00

    Modern binoculars and scopes meet a variety of user needs. This Field Guide provides readers with a concise, organized reference that explains the functions and configurations of instruments commonly used by bird watchers, hunters, amateur astronomers, and military and law-enforcement members. This book also addresses the rationale behind instrument... more...

  • Field Guide to Diffractive Opticsby Yakov Soskind

    SPIE 2011; US$ 36.00

    This SPIE Field Guide provides the operational principles and established terminology of diffractive optics as well as a comprehensive overview of the main types of diffractive optics components.

Topics covered include technologically important effects, recent developments in nonlinear optics, and linear optical properties central to nonlinear phenomena. The focus of each section is based on my research... more...

  • Field Guide to Polarizationby Edward Collett

    SPIE 2005; US$ 36.00

    The polarization of light is one of the most remarkable phenomena in nature and has led to numerous discoveries and applications. The nature and mathematical formulation of unpolarized light and partially polarized light were not readily forthcoming until the 1950s, when questions about polarized light and the mathematical tools to deal with it began... more...

  • Field Guide to Spectroscopyby David W. Ball

    SPIE 2006; US$ 36.00

    This field guide covers a broad spectrum of topics in the field of spectroscopy, condensing the subjects to their essentials. As such, novices can use this guide to obtain an overview of the field, and experts can use it as a quick reference. Beginning with basic definitions and explanations, this guide then describes the instruments that are used... more...
