  • Practical Applications of Infrared Thermal Sensing and Imaging Equipmentby Herbert Kaplan

    SPIE 2007; US$ 56.00

    The second edition of this text was published in 1999, and since that time many improvements have taken place in instrumentation performance and versatility. This third edition reviews these many changes and how they impact the way thermographers operate, deploy, calibrate, and test the new instruments. In addition, the instruments that have been made... more...

  • Introduction to Adaptive Opticsby Robert K. Tyson

    SPIE 2000; US$ 44.00

    Adaptive optics systems and components have achieved a level of sophistication and simplicity that goes beyond traditional applications in astronomy and the military and into developments in medicine, manufacturing, and communications. This book was written for those interested in the multidisciplinary technology and those who need a broad-brush explanation... more...

  • Introduction to Image Stabilizationby Scott W. Teare; Sergio R. Restaino

    SPIE 2006; US$ 47.00

    The use of image stabilization has grown to the point that it is now a common component of modern optical systems for imaging, communications, and remote-sensing applications. The benefits of image stabilization to astronomical research alone are so rich that it is common for astronomical telescopes, built over the last century, to be retrofitted... more...

  • Field Guide to Optical Fiber Technologyby Rüdiger Paschotta

    SPIE 2010; US$ 36.00

    This Field Guide describes many different types of fibers and their properties, as well as presents in a compact form the relevant physical foundations. Both passive and active (amplifying) fibers are discussed, and an overview on fiber nonlinearities and the application of active fibers in amplifiers and lasers is included. The large bibliography... more...

  • Optical Thin Filmsby James D. Rancourt

    SPIE 1996; US$ 64.00

    Practical, user-oriented reference for engineers who must incorporate and specify coatings for filters, antiglare effects, polarization, or other purposes in optical or electro-optical systems design. It focuses on preparation techniques and characteristics of commercially available products and provides information needed to determine what type of... more...

  • Fractal and Wavelet Image Compression Techniquesby Stephen Welstead

    SPIE 1999; US$ 49.00

    Interest in image compression for internet and other multimedia applications has spurred research into compression techniques that will increase storage capabilities and transmission speed. This tutorial provides a practical guide to fractal and wavelet approaches--two techniques with exciting potential. It is intended for scientists, engineers, researchers,... more...

  • Fundamentals of Electronic Image Processingby Arthur R. Weeks

    SPIE 1996; US$ 75.00

    Part of the SPIE/IEEE Series on Imaging Science and Engineering. This book is directed to practicing engineers and scientists who need to understand the fundamentals of image processing theory and algorithms to perform their technical tasks. It is intended to fill the gap between existing high-level texts dedicated to specialists in the field and the... more...

  • Optical Engineering Fundamentalsby Bruce H. Walker

    SPIE 2009; US$ 59.00

    This classic Tutorial Text provides a basic understanding of many fundamental optical principles. The Second Edition has been updated to reflect the development of electronic sensors, as well as the advent of mainstream consumer optical products. Chapters also emphasize the application of state-of-the-art computer software to generate solutions to... more...

  • Fundamentals of Infrared Detector Materialsby Michael A. Kinch

    SPIE 2007; US$ 56.00

    The choice of available infrared (IR) detectors for insertion into modern IR systems is both large and confusing. The purpose of this volume is to provide a technical database from which rational IR detector selection criteria evolve, and thus clarify the options open to the modern IR system designer. Emphasis concentrates mainly on high-performance... more...

  • Infrared Fibers and Their Applicationsby James A. Harrington

    SPIE 2004; US$ 71.00

    As an expert in the field with nearly 30 years' experience, Harrington provides complete and up-to-date coverage of infrared fiber technology. Readers are given in-depth facts about the three key types of IR fibers, including how they developed and how they work. What sets this book apart is its comprehensive look at current and future applications,... more...
