Research and Markets has declared the addition of John Wiley and Sons’ latest book ‘Introduction to Micro- and Nanooptics’ to its collection.
This textbook, discusses micro- and nanooptics and provides varied information about the physical background, technological developments and introduces readers to key topics in both subjects.
The initial chapters explaining the properties of light is followed by descriptive information about diffractive and refractive optical elements. Renowned authors from all over the world have analyzed and explained the various methods of lithographic and non-lithographic fabrication of microoptics and also offer an introduction on how the characterization and testing of microoptics must be carried out, familiarizing the reader with microoptics.
The next part of the book is based on MEMS, optical microsystems, and optical waveguide structures and optical nanostructures, which include photonic crystals and metamaterials. The entire study comes to a conclusion by including three appendices on Fourier mathematics, integration based on optical simulation techniques and stationary phase methods.
Every chapter is provided with exercises demonstrating a sample approach for complicated topics, as well as solutions. This textbook has been sketched in such a way as to furnish lecturers with an appropriate teaching aid to get a clear picture on optics as part of a physics or electrical engineering course.
The key topics covered in this textbook are Light propagation, Light as carrier of information and energy, Fabrication, Silicon micromachining for otpical MEMS, Refractive (micro)optics, Diffractive microoptics, Tunable microoptics, Characterization and testing of microoptics, Optical microsystems, Optical waveguide structures, Photonic crystals and Left-handed materials - negative-index materials. Stefan Sinzinger, Stefan Helfert and Jrgen Jahns are the authors of this book.
