#### Handbook Of Thermoluminescence

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 145.00This book provides practical support for research, study, routine work and terminology in the field of thermoluminescence (TL). It discusses the methods of determining the kinetic parameters, the procedures for characterizing a thermoluminescent dosimetric system, and the definition of terms commonly used in the literature. more...

#### Quantum Theory of Optical Coherence

Wiley 2007; US$ 256.00A summary of the pioneering work of Glauber in the field of optical coherence phenomena and photon statistics, this book describes the fundamental ideas of modern quantum optics and photonics in a tutorial style. It is thus not only intended as a reference for researchers in the field, but also to give graduate students an insight into the basic theories... more...

#### Introduction to Radiometry

SPIE 1998; US$ 44.00Radiometry is an essential part of the optical design of virtually every optical instrument, and key to many applications. It is also used to measure the radiation of various objects. This tutorial examines both the techniques of calculating radiative transfer and the measurement of fluxes and radiometric properties of various sorts. more...

#### Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation Physics

Wiley 2014; US$ 97.95Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation Physics approaches the topic of projective geometry as it applies to radiation physics and attempts to negate its negative reputation. With an original outlook and transversal approach, the book emphasizes common geometric properties and their potential transposition between domains. After... more...
