  • Optical Coating Technologyby Philip W. Baumeister

    SPIE 2004; US$ 94.00

    Baumeister organizes this book around the key subjects associated with functions of optical thin film performance, and provides a valuable resource in the field of thin film technology. The information is widely backed up with citations to patents and published literature. The author draws from 25 years of experience teaching classes at the UCLA Extension... more...

  • Basic Electro-Optics for Electrical Engineersby Glenn D. Boreman

    SPIE 1999; US$ 44.00

    This text introduces imaging, radiometry, sources, detectors, and lasers, with special emphasis on flux-transfer issues. The first-order approach enables students to make back-of-the-envelope calculations needed for initial setup of optical apparatus. It is intended for students and newcomers to electro-optics. more...

  • Modulation Transfer Function in Optical and Electro-Optical Systemsby Glenn D. Boreman

    SPIE 2001; US$ 44.00

    This tutorial introduces the theory and applications of MTF, used to specify the image quality achieved by an imaging system. It covers basic linear systems theory and the relationship between impulse response, resolution, MTF, OTF, PTF, and CTF. Practical measurement and testing issues are discussed. more...

  • Digital and Analog Fiber Optic Communications for CATV and FTTx Applicationsby Avigdor Brillant

    SPIE 2008; US$ 105.00

    This book is intended to provide a step-by-step guide to all design aspects and tradeoffs from theory to application for fiber-optics transceiver electronics. Presenting a compendium of information in a structured way, this book enables the engineer to develop a methodical design approach, a deep understanding of specifications parameters and the reasons... more...

  • Bioluminescence and Fluorescence for In Vivo Imagingby Lubov Brovko

    SPIE 2011; US$ 56.00

    Bioluminescence methods are gaining increased attention due to their sensitivity, selectivity, and simplicity, along with the fact that bioluminescence can be monitored both in vitro and in vivo . This book introduces bioluminescence and fluorescence systems, along with the principles of their application for in vivo imaging of intracellular processes,... more...

  • Demystifying Electromagnetic Equationsby Douglas L. Cohen

    SPIE 2001; US$ 71.00

    In classical Newtonian mechanics, equations and formulas never change form. The same cannot be said about equations and formulas of electromagnetic theory, which often change form when converted from one system of units to another. Douglas Cohen provides exactly what the technical professional needs: a thorough explanation of how to convert electromagnetic... more...

  • Field Guide to Polarizationby Edward Collett

    SPIE 2005; US$ 36.00

    The polarization of light is one of the most remarkable phenomena in nature and has led to numerous discoveries and applications. The nature and mathematical formulation of unpolarized light and partially polarized light were not readily forthcoming until the 1950s, when questions about polarized light and the mathematical tools to deal with it began... more...

  • Wavefront Optics for Vision Correctionby Guang-ming Dai

    SPIE 2008; US$ 73.00

    This book addresses some of the issues in visual optics with a functional analysis of ocular aberrations, especially for the purpose of vision correction. The basis is the analytical representation of ocular aberrations with a set of orthonormal polynomials, such as Zernike polynomials or the Fourier series. Although the aim of this book is the application... more...

  • Field Guide to Infrared Systems, Detectors, and FPAsby Arnold Daniels

    SPIE 2011; US$ 36.00

    This second edition is written to clarify and summarize the theoretical principles of infrared technology. It is intended as a reference for the practicing engineer and/or scientist who requires effective practical information to design, build, and/or test infrared equipment in a wide variety of applications. This Field Guide combines numerous engineering... more...

  • Random Processes for Image and Signal Processingby Edward R. Dougherty

    SPIE 1999; US$ 78.00

    Part of the SPIE/IEEE Series on Imaging Science and Engineering. This book provides a framework for understanding the ensemble of temporal, spatial, and higher-dimensional processes in science and engineering that vary randomly in observations. Suitable as a text for undergraduate and graduate students with a strong background in probability and as... more...
