Leser schätzen dieses Lehrbuch vor allem wegen seines ausgewogenen didaktischen Konzepts. Leicht verständlich erklärt es die Mathematik der Wellenbewegung, behandelt ausführlich die klassischen und modernen Methoden der Optik und erkundet die Neuerungen und großen Entwicklungen bei z.B. Laser, Faseroptik, Holographie, Fourier-Optik und nichtlineare Optik. Ziel des Autors ist dabei, die Optik im Rahmen einiger weniger, übergreifender Konzepte zu vereinheitlichen, so dass Studierende ein in sich geschlossenes, zusammenhängendes Bild erhalten. Abgerundet wird das Buch durch zahlreiche, didaktisch hervorragend aufbereitete Abbildungen und viele aktuelle Fotos. Über 800 Übungsaufgaben verschiedener Schwierigkeitsgrade, die zu einem großen Teil mit vollständigen Lösungen vorliegen, ermöglichen dem Studierenden, sein Wissen selbständig zu überprüfen. Über 750 Abbildungen und über 800 Übungsaufgaben verschiedener Schwierigkeitsgrade, meist mit ausführlichen Lösungen. Das Standardwerk der Optik seit über 25 Jahren. Umfangreich wie kein zweites Buch, von der Ausbreitung des Lichts bis zur Überlagerung von Wellen.

Since the invention of the laser, our fascination with the photon has led to one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing fields of technology. As the reality of all-optical systems comes into focus, it is more important than ever to stay current with the latest advances in the optics and components that enable photonics technology. Comprising chapters drawn from the author's highly anticipated book Photonics: Principles and Practices, Physical Optics: Principles and Practices offers a detailed and focused treatment for anyone in need of authoritative information on this critical area underlying photonics. Using a consistent approach, the author leads you step-by-step through each topic. Each skillfully crafted chapter first explores the theoretical concepts of each topic, and then demonstrates how these principles apply to real-world applications by guiding you through experimental cases illuminated with numerous illustrations. The book works systematically through the principles of waves, diffraction, interference, diffraction gratings, interferometers, spectrometers, and several aspects of laser technology to build a thorough understanding of how to study and manipulate the behavior of light for various applications. In addition, it includes a four-page insert containing several full-color illustrations as well as a chapter on laboratory safety. Containing several topics presented for the first time in book form, Physical Optics: Principles and Practices is simply the most modern, detailed, and hands-on text in the field.

The contributions of this book represent only a small sample of the work of the many researcher electromagneticians who have had the pleasure of being associated with Professor Papas, either as students or as colleagues. Many of us continue to work in the many and diverse areas that modem electro magnetism encompasses. There is, however, a common thread that was derived from our association with Professor Papas that has greatly influenced our thinking and technical style of expression. Professor Papas, from his studies at Harvard, brought with him to Pasadena a very fundamental and classical point of view that was instilled in all those who were associated with him. He saw research problems as a combination offundamental physical and mathematical principles and the electromagnetic "reality. " He searched and demanded clarity and often, in the rather involved and engaging discussions which took place in his office, he demanded that the "baby picture" be clearly drawn on the blackboard. This requirement, certainly for some of us who were working in widely varied subjects ranging from relativistic plasmas to almost periodic media, has forced us to reexamine the fundamentals. The clear and lucid marriage of fundamental concepts to applications has been the trademark of Professor Papas's intellectual tradition, and has greatly in fluenced the thinking of all of those who have associated with him.

Optical Systems for Soft X Rays

ISBN: 1461322235

Category: Science

Page: 344

A fundamental problem in cell biology is the cause of aging. The solution to this problem has not yet been obtained because,(l) until recently, it was not possible to image living cells directly. The use of low-energy (soft) X rays has made such imaging possible, perhaps thereby allowing the aging process to be understood and possibly overcome (a result that may well generate further social, moral, and ethical problems). Fortun ately this is not the only aspect of cell biology amenable to soft X-ray imaging, and it is envisaged that many less controversial studies--such as investigations of the detailed differences between healthy and diseased or malignant cells (in their natural states) and processes of cell division and growth-will be made possible. The use of soft X rays is not limited to biological studies-many applications are possible in, for example, fusion research, materials science, and astronomy. Such studies have only recently begun in earnest because several difficulties had to be overcome, major among these being the lack (for some purposes) of sufficiently intense sources, and the technological difficulties associated with making efficient optical systems. As is well known, the advent of dedicated synchrotron radiation sources, in particular, has alleviated the first of these difficulties, not just for the soft X-ray region. It is the purpose of this book to consider progress in the second.

Classical Electromagnetic Radiation, Second Edition focuses on the classical electrodynamics with emphasis on radiation problems and the wave attributes of the electromagnetic field. This book aims to provide a modern and practically sophisticated mathematical treatment of classical electrodynamics at the undergraduate level. Organized into 13 chapters, this edition starts with an overview of the basic principles of electromagnetism. This text then presents a detailed discussion of Laplace's equation and a treatment of multiple effects, since such material is of considerable significance in the development of radiation theory. Other chapters consider the electromagnetic field equations, which are developed in the time-dependent form. This book discusses as well the subjects of wave propagation in space as well as in material media. The final chapter presents an introduction to relativistic electrodynamics. This book is a valuable resource for physicists, engineers, and readers who are interested in the applications of electrodynamics in modern physics.
