The Optics Encyclopedia (5 volumes)

£80.00

Product description

Written by internationally recognized experts, the high quality of the articles provides dependable information on topics of current interest in industrial and academic research as well as background knowledge. Covering both theoretical and applied optics, each article has not only a list of references cited in the text but also a guide to further reading. Each article also concludes with a glossary containing the technical terms necessary for the topic under consideration. Throughout, the subject matter is treated in a tutorial, user-friendly way rather than as a pure reference and is supplemented by references cited in the text and a listing of important reviews and books.

With 94 expert articles in 5 volumes, the Optical Encyclopedia is both a comprehensive review as well as an introduction to the entire field. The contributions range from classical optics right up to the latest applications, including: It and Telecommunications Optical Sensing and Metrology Material Processing Biomedicine Optical Components and Systems Laser Design and technology A comprehensive index provides easy access to the enormous number of key words beyond the headlines. The result is a rapid reference for skilled professionals on all topics of modern photonics, while newcomers from physics and engineering will appreciate the readily comprehensible style and structure.

There is a small nick to the top of the spine of Volume 5. Other than that the books are in excellent condition throughout.
