  1. Fast Light, Slow Light and Left-Handed Light

    By P.W. Milonni

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    The propagation of light in dispersive media is a subject of fundamental as well as practical importance. In recent years attention has focused in particular on how refractive index can vary with frequency in such a way that the group velocities of optical pulses can be much greater or much smaller...

  2. Diode Lasers

    By D. Sands

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    Diode lasers use nearly microscopic chips of gallium-arsenide or other exotic semiconductor material to generate coherent light in a very small package. Their compact size, reliability, and low cost means that they find applications in all aspects of modern technology-most importantly they drive...

  3. Diffractional Optics of Millimetre Waves

    By I.V. Minin, O.V. Minin

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    Diffractional Optics of Millimetre Waves combines those elements of diffraction theory normally associated with optics, including Gaussian beams, lenses, and mirrors, and extends them into the micro- and millimetre wavelength range. In this regime there are a number of applications in devices,...

  4. Handbook of Electroluminescent Materials

    Edited by D. R. Vij

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    An electroluminescent (EL) material is one that emits electromagnetic (EM) radiation in the visible or near visible range when an electric field is applied to it. EL materials have a vast array of applications in the illumination and displays industries, from cheap and energy efficient lighting to...

  5. Handbook of Moire Measurement

    Edited by C.A. Walker

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    Since its development in the late 1970s, the Moiré Fringe method has become a standard technique for the measurement of the behavior of materials and structures. Edited by one of the co-inventors of the technique, the Handbook of Moiré Measurement brings together a series of extended case studies...

  6. Next Generation Photovoltaics

    High Efficiency through Full Spectrum Utilization

    Edited by A. Martí, A. Luque

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    Although photovoltaics are regarded by many as the most likely candidate for long term sustainable energy production, their implementation has been restricted by the high costs involved. Nevertheless, the theoretical limit on photovoltaic energy conversion efficiency-above 85%-suggests that there...

  7. Stimulated Brillouin Scattering

    Fundamentals and Applications

    By M J Damzen, V Vlad, Anca Mocofanescu, V Babin

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) is the most important example of a stimulated scattering process-light scattering that occurs when the intensity of the light field itself affects the propagating medium. A phenomenon that has been known of for some 35 years in solid state laser research, it...

  8. Laser-Induced Damage of Optical Materials

    By Roger M. Wood

    Series: Series in Optics and Optoelectronics

    The laser power handling capacities of optical systems are determined by the physical properties of their component materials. At low intensity levels these factors are not important, but an understanding of damage mechanisms is fundamental to good design of laser products operating at high power....
