Visual Ecology

by Thomas W. Cronin, Sonke Johnsen & N. Justin Marshall

Visual ecology is the study of how animals use visual systems to meet their ecological needs, how these systems have evolved, and how they are specialized for particular visual tasks. Visual Ecology provides...

Strong Light-Matter Coupling: From Atoms to Solid-State Systems

by Alexia Auffèves, Dario Gerace & Maxime Richard

The physics of strong light-matter coupling has been addressed in different scientific communities over the last three decades. Since the early eighties, atoms coupled to optical and microwave cavities have...

Vectorial Optical Fields: Fundamentals and Applications

by Qiwen Zhan

Polarization is a vector nature of light that plays an important role in optical science and engineering. While existing textbook treatments of light assume beams with spatially homogeneous polarization, there...

Ultrafast Dynamics in Molecules, Nanostructures and Interfaces

by G G Gurzadyan, G Lanzan & C Soc

Primary events in natural systems or devices occur on extremely short time scales, and yet determine in many cases the final performance or output. For this reason research in ultrafast science is of primary...
