Handbook of Optics: Volume IV - Optical Properties of Materials, Nonlinear Optics, Quantum Optics, Third Edition

by: Michael Bass


Abstract: The most authoritative and complete collection of optics data, techniques, and applications–fully revised and updated. Prepared under the auspices of the Optical Society of America, the world's largest professional optics society, the five carefully architected and cross-referenced volumes of the Handbook of Optics contain everything a student, scientist, or engineer requires to actively work in the field. From the design of complex optical systems to world-class research and development techniques, this definitive work provides unparalleled access to the fundamentals of the discipline and its greatest minds. Individual chapters are written by the biggest names in optics from around the world who explain, illustrate, and solve the entire field of optics. Each volume contains a complete chapter listing for the entire Handbook, extensive chapter glossaries, and a wealth of references in every chapter. This is the only optics resource of its kind. Volume IV covers optical properties of materials, nonlinear optics, and quantum and molecular optics.
