Optics - Physics Books
Current Applied Physics is an international journal which covers all the fields of applied science investigating the physics of the advanced materials for future applications. Other areas covered: Experimental and theoretical aspects of advanced materials and devices dealing with synthesis or structural chemistry, physical and electronic properties, photonics, engineering application and uniquely pertinent measurement or analytical techniques. Current Applied Physics covers physics, chemistry and materials science, including bio-materials, with their engineering aspects. This journal is a truly interdisciplinary journal opening a forum for the scientists of all related fields, a unique point of the journal discriminating it from other worldwide and/or Pacific Rim applied physics journals.
The encyclopedia provides valuable reference material for those working in the field who wish to know more about a topic outside their area of expertise, as well as providing an authoritative reference source for students and researchers. Undergraduate students should find it a useful source of material, as will teachers and lecturers. It will also be useful at the postgraduate level for summarizing a broad range of theoretical topics, for practical advice on research techniques and for insights into new ways of approaching research problems.
Optical Methods of Measurement: Wholefield Techniques, Second Edition provides a comprehensive collection of wholefield optical measurement techniques for engineering applications. Along with the reorganization of contents, this edition includes a new chapter on optical interference, new material on nondiffracting and singular beams and their applications, and updated bibliography and additional reading sections.
Springer Handbook of Lasers and Optics gives a complete and up-to-date overview of this area in one consistent book. It is designed for daily use in the office or laboratory and offers descriptive text, data, and references needed for anyone working with lasers and optical instruments. All articles are written by leading experts and a CD-ROM is provided for easy search.
This book brings together and couples results from electromagnetic, mechanics, thermodynamics, solid state physics, chemistry, optics, and materials science to provide a coherent picture of materials science, in particular their optical properties. It discusses the underlying physical basis of the each property, including constituents, bonding, and structural order. The book also discusses units and unit conversions, provides simple models for estimating properties or extrapolating data as well as examples of how to fit data using these models. Two chapters are completely devoted to practical problems in optical systems.
