  • Image Content Retargetingby Alessandro Artusi; Francesco Banterle; Tunç Ozan Aydin; Daniele Panozzo; Olga Sorkine-Hornung

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 89.95

    In recent years visual devices have proliferated, from the massive high-resolution, high-contrast screens to the tiny ones on mobile phones, with their limited dynamic range and color gamut. The wide variety of screens on which content may be viewed creates a challenge for developers. Adapting visual content for optimized viewing on all devices is... more...

  • Silicon Light-Emitting Diodes and Lasersby Motoichi Ohtsu

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book focuses on a novel phenomenon named photon breeding. It is applied to realizing light-emitting diodes and lasers made of indirect-transition-type silicon bulk crystals in which the light-emission principle is based on dressed photons. After presenting physical pictures of dressed photons and dressed-photon phonons, the principle of light... more...

  • Spatial Audio Reproduction with Primary Ambient Extractionby JianJun He

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 54.99

    This book first introduces the background of spatial audio reproduction, with different types of audio content and for different types of playback systems. A literature study on the classical and emerging Primary Ambient Extraction (PAE) techniques is presented. The emerging techniques aim to improve the extraction performance and also enhance the... more...

  • Ultrafast Strong Field Dynamics in Dielectricsby Annkatrin Madlen Sommer

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents a systematic discussion of experimental approaches to investigating the nonlinear interaction of ultrashort visible strong fields with dielectrics directly in the time domain. The key finding is the distinctly different peak-intensity dependence of the light-matter energy transfer dynamics on the one hand, and the observed transient... more...
