Slow Light: Science and Applications (Optical Science and Engineering)
Exotic effects of slow light have been observed in the laboratory. But most currently available texts do not explore the wider field of slow light in photonic structures and optical fibers. Reflecting recent research, this book presents a comprehensive introduction to slow light and its potential applications, including storage, switching,...
Introduction to Quantum Theory "The expertise of Paul shows in the easy transitions made between discussions of theory and experiment, particularly in subjects related to quantum optics."
M.C. Ogilvie, Choice Magazine
Providing a deeper understanding of the microscopic world through quantum theory, this supplementary text covers a wider...
Elements of Photonics Volume 2 Provides a particularly good discussion of the electromagnetics of light in bounded media (i.e., fibers).
* The only book that treats the two complementary topics, fiber and integrated optics.
* A careful and thorough presentation of the topics that make it well suited for self-study.
* Includes numerous figures,...
Telescope Optics : Complete Manual for Amateur Astronomers The authors gratefully acknowledge the help of Klaas Compaan, who was our advisor during the writing of this book. He guarded us against a number of errors and unclarities and also allowed us to publish the data for some of the new optical systems he has designed.
We received further support from Richard Berry, our editor. He invested a...

Electronic Materials Science Starting in the 1960s the field of materials science has undergone significant changes,
from a field derived largely from well-established disciplines of metallurgy and ceramics
to a field that includes microelectronics, polymers, biomaterials, and nanotechnology. The
stringent materials requirements, such as extreme purity, perfect...
Digital Holography and Digital Image Processing: Principles, Methods, Algorithms
Digital holography and digital image processing are twins born by computer era. They share origin, theoretical base, methods and algorithms. The present book describes these common fundamentals principles, methods and algorithms including image and hologram digitization, data compression, digital transforms and efficient computational...
Great Feuds in Mathematics: Ten of the Liveliest Disputes Ever
Mathematical disputes offer indisputable proof that great mathematical minds are calculating in more ways than one. Fueled by greed, jealousy, ambition, and ego, they have plots worthy of a soap opera, pitting brother against brother, father against son, and student against mentor.
In the sixteenth century, Cardano and Tartaglia battled...
