  • Statistical Methods in Quantum Optics, 2by Howard J. Carmichael

    Springer 2009; US$ 129.00

    This second volume of Howard Carmichael's work continues the development of the methods used in quantum optics to treat open quantum systems and their fluctuations. Its early chapters build upon the phase-space methods introduced in Volume 1. Written on a level suitable for debut researchers or students in an advanced course in quantum optics,... more...

  • Surface-Enhanced Raman Scatteringby Katrin Kneipp; Martin Moskovits; Harald Kneipp

    Springer 2006; US$ 329.00

    Almost 30 years after the first reports on surface-enhanced Raman signals, the phenomenon of surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is well established. This book summarizes and discusses theoretical approaches that explain the phenomenon of SERS and reports on experiments and applications of the spectroscopic effect. more...

  • Terahertz Frequency Detection and Identification of Materials and Objectsby Robert E. Miles; Xi-cheng Zhang; Heribert Eisele

    Springer 2007; US$ 129.00

    Terahertz frequency sensing has a unique part to play in the detection and identification of materials and objects. This frequency range, corresponding to a wavelength of around 0.1 mm, can be used to identify materials from their molecular spectra and to produce images of concealed objects. Terahertz spectra of drugs of abuse and explosives presented... more...

  • Physics of Negative Refraction and Negative Index Materialsby Clifford M. Krowne; Yong Zhang

    Springer 2007; US$ 239.00

    This book deals with the subject of optical and electronic negative refraction (NR) and negative index materials NIM). Diverse approaches for achieving NR and NIM are covered, such as using photonic crystals, phononic crystals, split-ring resonators (SRRs) and continuous media, focusing of waves, guided-wave behavior, and nonlinear effects. Specific... more...

  • Aerosol Opticsby Alexander A. Kokhanovsky

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    Provides a comprehensive review of available techniques for the remote sensing of aerosols. Considering satellite remote sensing, this book also describes ground-based techniques. It describes techniques for the determination of the column concentration of aerosol particles and their optical sizing using spaceborne optical instrumentation. more...

  • Slow Lightby Jacob B. Khurgin; Rodney S. Tucker

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 179.95

    One of the Top Selling Physics Books according to YBP Library Services The exotic effects of slow light have been widely observed in the laboratory. However, current literature fails to explore the wider field of slow light in photonic structures and optical fibers. Reflecting recent research, Slow Light: Science and Applications presents... more...

  • Handbook of Optical Metrologyby Toru Yoshizawa

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 164.95

    The field of optical metrology offers a wealth of both practical and theoretical accomplishments, and can cite any number of academic papers recording such. However, while several books covering specific areas of optical metrology do exist, until the pages herein were researched, written, and compiled, the field lacked for a comprehensive handbook,... more...
