Intended for junior/senior-level courses in Fiber-Optic Communications, this practical introduction takes a look at the industry, and prepares students for their work in the field by providing a foundation in the basics with examples, graphical presentations, and solutions to problems that are similar to those found in the actual workplace.
Recent applications of laser based techniques in studying surface processes have stimulated new developments in energy transfer and reactions. This text, along with volume 2, includes discussions on spectroscopic techniques, energy transfer, desorption dynamics and photochemistry.
This text introduces the student to state-of-the-art laser research techniques. Requiring only a low-cost, low-power laser, it presents a series of experiments exploring the interaction of light with matter for in-class demonstrations or student activities.
Continuing William Mitchell's investigations of how we understand, reason about, and use images, The Reconfigured Eye provides the first systematic, critical analysis of the digital imaging revolution.
This is the second volume in the series to address the subject of laser fusion. It reviews the most recent developments in laser plasma physics. Topics such as absorption, instability, plasma coronas, energy transport and radiation are covered.
