This is the first comprehensive book on the engineering of diamond optical devices. Written by 39 experts in the field, it gives readers an up-to-date review of the properties of optical quality synthetic diamond...

Optical Radiation and Matter

by Robert Brecha & J Michael O’Hare

Optical Radiation and Matter provides a deeper look at electricity and magnetism and the interaction of optical radiation with molecules and solid materials. The focus is on developing an understanding of the...

Semiconductor Integrated Optics for Switching Light (Second Edition)

by Charlie Ironside

Semiconductor Integrated Optics for Switching Light (Second Edition) provides concise description of the physics and engineering of semiconductor optical waveguides for photonic and electronic switching with...

The Physics of Experiment Instrumentation Using MATLAB Apps

by Dan Green

Some twenty years ago the author published a book entitled The Physics of Particle Detectors. Much has evolved since that time, not in the basic physics, but in the complexity, number and versatility of the...

Harnessing the Sun - A Conversation with Jenny Nelson

by Howard Burton

This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and Jenny Nelson, Professor of Physics and Head of the Climate Change mitigation team at the Grantham Institute at Imperial College...

Lens Design (Second Edition)

by Donald Dilworth

This second edition of Lens Design: Automatic and quasi-autonomous computational methods and techniques shows how these new tools can design systems in minutes that would have required weeks or months of labor...

Electromagnetic Waves and Lasers (Second Edition)

by Wayne D Kimura

Electromagnetic Waves and Lasers reviews electromagnetic wave theory with a special emphasis on lasers and how to use them in optical systems. As a short treatise on this subject matter, this book aims to offer...

Fundamentals of Quantum Entanglement

by F J Duarte

Quantum entanglement (QE) is one of the most mysterious and promising subjects in physics. With applications in cryptographic space-to-space, space-to-earth and fibre communications, in addition to teleportation...

Optics Experiments and Demonstrations for Student Laboratories

by Stephen G Lipson

This book provides a comprehensive guide to a wide range of optical experiments. Topics covered include classical geometrical and physical optics, polarization, scattering and diffraction, imaging, interference,...

Lasers and Their Application to the Observation of BoseEinstein Condensates

by Richard A Dunlap

The first part of this text provides an overview of the physics of lasers and it describes some of the more common types of lasers and their applications. The production of laser light requires the formation...

Quantum Mechanics in the Single Photon Laboratory
