Semiconductor Optics

The updated and enlarged new edition of this book provides an introduction to and an overview of semiconductor optics from the IR through the visible to the UV. It includes coverage of linear and nonlinear optical properties, dynamics, magneto- and electrooptics, high-excitation effects, some applications, experimental techniques and group theory. The mathematics is kept as elementary as possible. The subjects covered extend from physics to materials science and optoelectronics. New or updated chapters add coverage of current topics, while the chapters on bulk materials have been revised and updated.

Optically Anomalous Crystals

This is an invaluable text for crystallographers, mineralogists, and petrologists interested in the growth of minerals and synthetic crystals, and their optical properties. It is also ideally suited to students of optical mineralogy, professional scientists and engineers as well as historians of science.

Fibre Optic Methods for Structural Health Monitoring

Fibre Optic Methods for Structural Health Monitoring is organised as a step-by-step guide to implementing a monitoring system and includes examples of common structures and their most-frequently monitored parameters.

Springer Handbook of Electronic and Photonic Materials

The Springer Handbook of Electronic and Photonic Materials has been prepared to give a broad coverage of a wide range of electronic and photonic materials, starting from fundamentals and building up to advanced topics and applications. Its wide coverage with clear illustrations and applications, its chapter sequencing and logical flow, make it very different than other electronic materials handbooks. Each chapter has been prepared either by experts in the field or instructors who have been teaching the subject at a university or in corporate laboratories.

Organic Optoelectronics

Written by internationally recognized experts in the field with academic as well as industrial experience, this book concisely yet systematically covers all aspects of the topic.

Liquid Phase Epitaxy of Electronic, Optical and Optoelectronic Materials

This book covers the bulk growth of semiconductors, i.e. silicon, gallium arsenide, cadmium mercury telluride, indium phosphide, indium antimonide, gallium nitride, cadmium zinc telluride, a range of wide-bandgap II-VI compounds, diamond and silicon carbide, and a wide range of oxides/fluorides (including sapphire and quartz) that are used in many industrial applications.

Basic Electromagnetism and Materials

Basic Electromagnetism and Materials is the product of many years of teaching basic and applied electromagnetism. This textbook can be used to teach electromagnetism to a wide range of undergraduate science majors in physics, electrical engineering, or materials science.

Silicon Photonics: Fundamentals and Devices

The creation of affordable high speed optical communications using standard semiconductor manufacturing technology is a principal aim of silicon photonics research.

Colour and The Optical Properties of Materials: An Exploration of the Relationship Between Light, the Optical Properties of Materials and Colour, 2nd Edition

Colour and the Optical Properties of Materials carefully introduces the science behind the subject, along with many modern and cutting-edge applications, chosen to appeal to today's students. For science students, it provides a broad introduction to the subject and the many applications of colour. To more applied students, such as engineering and arts students, it provides the essential scientific background to colour and the many applications.

Optical Thin Films And Coatings

Most modern optical systems contain as an integral part, optical coatings including anti-reflection coatings, mirrors, filters and beam splitters.

Optical Engineering of Diamond

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 (single crystal and nanodiamond) and the nascent field of diamond optical device engineering.

Light Scattering in Solids IX

This is the ninth volume of a well-established series in which expert practitioners discuss topical aspects of light scattering in solids. It reviews recent developments concerning mainly semiconductor nanostructures and inelastic x-ray scattering, including both coherent time-domain and spontaneous scattering studies.

Handbook Of Organic Materials For Optical And Optoelectronic Devices

Conjugated polymers and small molecules, the two major types of organic materials used for optoelectronic and photonic devices, can be used in a variety of applications that include organic light-emitting diodes, photovoltaic devices, photorefractive devices and waveguides. Organic materials are attractive due to their low cost, the possibility of their deposition from solution onto large-area substrates, and the ability to optimize their properties. The Handbook of organic materials for optical and optoelectronic devices offers an overview of the properties of organic optoelectronic and nonlinear optical materials, and explains how these materials can be used across a range of applications.

Optical Data Storage

Optical Data Storage is aimed at a broad range of readers – from university teams studying the subject to industrial media manufacturers requiring insights into performance of rewritable optical media.
