    SPIE 2001; US$ 71.00

    Renewed interest in laser communication systems has sparked development of useful new analytic models. This book discusses optical scintillation and its impact on system performance in free-space optical communication and laser radar applications, with a detailed look at propagation phenomena and the role of scintillation on system behavior. Intended... more...

  • Field Guide to Geometrical Opticsby John E. Greivenkamp

    SPIE 2004; US$ 36.00

    This Field Guide derives from the treatment of geometrical optics that has evolved from both the undergraduate and graduate programs at the Optical Sciences Center at the University of Arizona. The development is both rigorous and complete, and it features a consistent notation and sign convention. This volume covers Gaussian imagery, paraxial optics,... more...

  • Matrix Methods for Optical Layoutby Gerhard Kloos

    SPIE 2007; US$ 47.00

    This book is intended to familiarize the reader with the method of Gaussian matrices and some related tools of optical design. The matrix method provides a means to study an optical system in the paraxial approximation. This text contains new results such as theorems on the design of variable optics, on integrating rods, on the optical layout of prism... more...

  • Optical Designby Max J. Riedl

    SPIE 2009; US$ 47.00

    This text is written for engineers and scientists who have some experience in the field of optics and want to know more about the details and derivations of equations used in optical design. Organized by topic, the book begins with the fundamental law of geometrical optics, Snell's law of refraction, and states the paraxial ray trace equations,... more...

  • Introduction to Complex Mediums for Optics and Electromagneticsby Werner S. Weiglhofer; Akhlesh Lakhtakia

    SPIE 2003; US$ 94.00

    Complex-mediums electromagnetics (CME) describes the study of electromagnetic fields in materials with complicated response properties. This truly multidisciplinary field commands the attentions of scientists from physics and optics to electrical and electronic engineering, from chemistry to materials science, to applied mathematics, biophysics, and... more...

  • Applied Prismatic and Reflective Opticsby Dennis F. Vanderwerf

    SPIE 2010; US$ 70.00

    From the early ground and polished prism facets of glass lighthouse Fresnel lenses to modern microreplicated flexible Fresnel lenses for solar concentrators, new applications of prismatic optical components for light control are constantly being developed. In addition, innovations utilizing single and compound prismatic and reflective optical components... more...

  • Optical Design for Visual Systemsby Bruce H. Walker

    SPIE 2005; US$ 44.00

    This tutorial explains the human eye, its function, and performance limits from the perspective of an experienced optical engineer and lens designer. It is concise and readable, with examples and data, and is intended for students, practicing engineers, and technology users. more...

  • Fundamental Optical Designby Michael J. Kidger

    SPIE 2001; US$ 65.00

    This book provides all the essential and best elements of Kidger's many courses taught worldwide on lens and optical design. It is written in a direct style that is compact, logical, and to the point--a tutorial in the best sense of the word. "I read my copy late last year and read it straight through, cover to cover. In fact, I read it no... more...

  • Free Energy Computationsby Tony Lelievre; Gabriel Stoltz; Mathias Rousset

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 105.00

    This monograph provides a general introduction to advanced computational methods for free energy calculations, from the systematic and rigorous point of view of applied mathematics. Free energy calculations in molecular dynamics have become an outstanding and increasingly broad computational field in physics, chemistry and molecular biology within... more...

  • Vieweg Handbuch Bauphysik Teil 1by Wolfgang M. Willems; Simone Dinter; Kai Schild

    Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2007; Not Available

    Nun ist es also vollbracht! Nach mehr als eineinhalb Jahren der Bearbeitung und na- dem dieses Buch zeitweise zum unfreiwilligen Mittelpunkt unseres Lebens wurde, liegt nun ein Werk vor, welches mit etwa 1200 Seiten Umfang in zwei Teilen sicherlich ohne ‹bertreibung als das umfangreichste Buch zum Thema Bauphysik bezeichnet werden darf. Das Fachgebiet... more...
