  • Spectroscopic Instrumentationby Thomas Eversberg; Klaus Vollmann

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 105.62

    In order to analyze the light of cosmic objects, particularly at extremely great distances, spectroscopy is the workhorse of astronomy. In the era of very large telescopes, long-term investigations are mainly performed with small professional instruments. Today they can be done using self-designed spectrographs and highly efficient CCD cameras, without... more...

  • Sensors and Microsystemsby C Di Natale

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 179.00 US$ 162.89

    This book collects a number of papers presented at the 13th Italian Conference on Sensors and Microsystems. It provides a unique perspective on the research and development of sensors, microsystems and related technologies in Italy. Besides the scientific value of the papers, this book offers a unique source of data to analysts that intend to survey... more...

  • Holographyby Gerhard K. Ackermann; Jü Eichler; rgen

    Wiley 2008; US$ 139.00 US$ 125.10

    From fundamentals to advanced experiments and applications, this book explains how holography works. It guides students from simple optics to advanced topics in holography, following a practical approach using real-world materials. This proven university textbook contains exercises plus solutions as well as instructions for more than 20 experiments. more...

  • Diffractive Opticsby Donald C. O'Shea; Thomas J. Suleski; Alan D. Kathman; Dennis W. Prather

    SPIE 2003; US$ 56.00

    This book provides the reader with the broad range of materials that were discussed in a series of short courses presented at Georgia Tech on the design, fabrication, and testing of diffractive optical elements (DOEs). Although there are not long derivations or detailed methods for specific engineering calculations, the reader should be familiar and... more...

  • Advanced Optics Using Aspherical Elementsby Rudiger Hentschel; Bernhard Braunecker; Hans J. Tiziani

    SPIE 2008; US$ 84.00

    Modern optical systems rely on leading-edge production technologies, especially when using aspherical optical elements. Due to the inherent complexity of aspheres, all efforts to push the technological limits are risky. Thus, to minimize risk, clear decisions based on a good understanding of technology are indispensable. This compendium is written... more...

  • Integrated Optomechanical Analysisby Keith B. Doyle; Victor L. Genberg; Gregory J. Michels

    SPIE 2002; US$ 56.00

    This tutorial presents optomechanical modeling techniques to effectively design and analyze high-performance optical systems. It discusses thermal and structural modeling methods that use finite-element analysis to predict the integrity and performance of optical elements and optical support structures. Includes accompanying CD-ROM with examples. more...

  • Field Guide to Interferometric Optical Testingby Eric P. Goodwin; James C. Wyant

    SPIE 2006; US$ 36.00

    A distillation of Dr. Wyant's course at the University of Arizona, this Field Guide covers the key fundamentals of interferometry, types of interferometers and interferograms, concepts of phase-shifting interferometry, long-wavelength interferometry, testing of aspheric surfaces, measurement of surface microstructure, flat and curved surface testing,... more...

  • Modeling the Imaging Chain of Digital Camerasby Robert D. Fiete

    SPIE 2010; US$ 47.00

    The process by which an image is formed, processed, and displayed can be conceptualized as a chain of physical events called the imaging chain. By mathematically modeling the imaging chain, we can gain insight into the relationship between the camera design parameters and the resulting image quality. The mathematical models can also be used to optimize... more...

  • Field Guide to Optical Thin Filmsby Ronald R. Willey

    SPIE 2006; US$ 36.00

    This Guide covers the principles and applications of various useful graphical tools and methods for optical coating design, including the reflectance diagram, admittance diagram, and triangle diagram. These tools give insight into how optical coatings function and how they might be designed to meet given requirements. Shown are how unavailable indices... more...

  • Developments in Postpress Technologyby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2006; US$ 460.00

    The finishing and fulfilment stages, are often the most overlooked aspects of the print process, but in many ways they are just as important as the printing itself. There is little point producing a perfectly printed document which is then roughly trimmed, inaccurately folded and send to the wrong address. The postpress stage in print production can... more...
