The field of thermoplasmonics has developed rapidly in the last decade and is now an active area of research due to its countless applications in nanoscience and nanomedicine. This accessible overview of the topic provides a detailed discussion of the relevant underlying theory in nanophotonics and the latest, cutting-edge applications.
Since the invention of the laser, the variety of lasers and their uses have grown at a phenomenal rate. Scientists and engineers have at their disposal an enormous array of sophisticated laser equipments with the possibility of carrying out experiments that were inconceivable only a few decades ago. Lasers for...
This book on quantum optics is from the point of view of an experimentalist. It approaches the theory of quantum optics with the language of optical modes of classical wave theory, with which experimentalists are most familiar. This approach makes the transition easy from classical optics to quantum optics. The...

This book provides advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers from diverse disciplines with the principal tools required to understand and contribute to rapidly advancing developments in light-matter interaction, centred at optical frequencies and length scales from a few hundred nanometres to a few hundredths of a nanometre.
By C. G. Vernon
Originally published in 1929, this informative textbook, aimed at school students, provides a reliable introduction on the subject of light. Offering a vibrant account of electromagnetic theory of radiation and an 'explanation of nearly all the phenomena hitherto investigated', this book presents 'an alternative approach to the subject'.
By R. Shankar
R. Shankar, a well-known physicist and contagiously enthusiastic educator, was among the first to offer a course through the innovative Open Yale Course program. His popular online video lectures on introductory physics have been viewed over a million times. In this second book based on his online Yale course, Shankar...
The topics include the fundamentals of optics and photonics, the optical properties of biological tissues, light-tissue interactions, microscopy for visualizing tissue components, spectroscopy for optically analyzing the properties of tissue, and optical biomedical imaging.
Band 3 des Grundkurses Theoretische Physik behandelt die Elektrodynamik in ihrer induktiven Formulierung. Mathematische Inhalte werden erwahnt, soweit sie fur das Verstandnis unverzichtbar sind. Das 7-bandige Werk deckt alle wichtigen Gebiete im Studium ab.
