  • Handbook of Nanoscopyby Gustaaf van Tendeloo; Dirk van Dyck; Stephen J. Pennycook

    Wiley 2012; US$ 430.00

    This completely revised successor to the Handbook of Microscopy supplies in-depth coverage of all imaging technologies from the optical to the electron and scanning techniques. Adopting a twofold approach, the book firstly presents the various technologies as such, before going on to cover the materials class by class, analyzing how the different imaging... more...

  • Progress in Nanophotonics 2by Motoichi Ohtsu

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    This book focuses the recent progress in nanophotonics technology to be used to develop novel nano-optical devices, fabrication technology, and advanced systems. It begins with a review of near-field excitation dynamics in molecules. Further topics include: wavelength up-converting a phonon-assisted excitation process with degenerate beams and non-degenerate... more...

  • Integrated Optomechanical Analysisby Keith B. Doyle

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 72.00

    This book presents finite element modeling techniques specific to optical systems and methods to integrate the thermal and structural response quantities into the optical model for detailed performance predictions. This edition expands upon the original content to include new illustrations and examples, as well as chapters about structural dynamics,... more...

  • Spectral Computed Tomographyby Björn J. Heismann; Bernhard T. Schmidt; Thomas G. Flohr

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 48.00

    Computed tomography (CT) is a widely used x-ray scanning technique. Prominently used as a medical imaging device, CT serves as a workhorse in many clinical settings throughout the world, providing answers to urgent diagnostic tasks such as oncology tumor staging, acute stroke analysis, or radiation therapy planning. Spectral Computed Tomography provides... more...

  • Sociology of the Visual Sphereby Regev Nathansohn; Dennis Zuev

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 140.00

    This collection of original articles deals with two intertwined general questions: what is the visual sphere, and what are the means by which we can study it sociologically? These questions serve as the logic for dividing the book into two sections, the first ("Visualizing the Social, Sociologizing the Visual") focuses on the meanings of the visual... more...

  • Mathematical Opticsby Vasudevan Lakshminarayanan; María L. Calvo; Tatiana Alieva

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 159.95

    Going beyond standard introductory texts, Mathematical Optics: Classical, Quantum, and Computational Methods brings together many new mathematical techniques from optical science and engineering research. Profusely illustrated, the book makes the material accessible to students and newcomers to the field. Divided into six parts, the text presents... more...

  • Optics in Instrumentsby Jean Pierre Goure

    Wiley 2013; US$ 125.00

    Optics is a science which covers a very large domain and is experiencing indisputable growth. It has enabled the development of a considerable number of instruments, the optical component or methodology of which is often the essential part of portent systems. This book sets out show how optical physical phenomena such as lasers – the basis of... more...
