Progress in Optics

by Emil Wolf

In the almost fifty years that have gone by since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science. The volumes in this series that have appeared...

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...

Nonlinear Optics: Fundamentals, Materials and Devices

by S. Miyata

The field of nonlinear optics developed gradually with the invention of lasers. After the discovery of second-harmonic generation in quartz, many other interesting nonlinear optical processes were rapidly discovered....

Principles of Electron Optics: Wave Optics

by Peter W. Hawkes & E. Kasper

The three volumes in the PRINCIPLES OF ELECTRON OPTICS Series constitute the first comprehensive treatment of electron optics in over forty years. While Volumes 1 and 2 are devoted to geometrical optics, Volume...

Quantum Physics

by Serge Haroche & Liz Libbrecht

From the infinitely small to the infinitely big, covering over 60 spatial orders of magnitude, quantum theory is used as much to describe the still largely mysterious vibrations of the microscopic strings that...

Basics of Interferometry

by P. Hariharan

This book is for those who have some knowledge of optics, but little or no previous experience in interferometry. Accordingly, the carefully designed presentation helps readers easily find and assimilate the...

Lasers and Holography

by Winston E. Kock

Accessible, illustrated introduction covers wave patterns and coherence, summarizes the development of lasers and the phenomenon of wave diffraction, and describes zone plates and properties of holograms. 1981...

The Psychology of Visual Illusion

by J. O. Robinson

Well-rounded perspective on the ambiguities of visual display emphasizes geometrical optical illusions: framing and contrast effects, distortion of angles and direction, and apparent "movement" of images. 240...

Foundations of Laser Spectroscopy

by Stig Stenholm

A simple presentation of the theoretical foundations of steady-state laser spectroscopy, this text helps students to apply theory to calculations with a systematic series of examples and exercises. 1984 edition....
