Introduction to Optical Microscopy

Introduction to Optical Microscopy

Author: Jerome (Boston University) Mertz Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/07/2019

This fully updated, self-contained textbook covering modern optical microscopy equips students with a solid understanding of the theory underlying a range of advanced techniques. Two new chapters cover pump-probe techniques, and imaging in scattering media, and additional material throughout covers light-sheet microscopy, image scanning microscopy, and much more. An array of practical techniques are discussed, from classical phase contrast and confocal microscopy, to holographic, structured illumination, multi-photon, and coherent Raman microscopy, and optical coherence tomography. Fundamental topics are also covered, including Fourier optics, partial coherence, 3D imaging theory, statistical optics, and the physics of scattering and fluorescence. With a wealth of end-of-chapter problems, and a solutions manual for instructors available online, this is an invaluable book for electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, and physics students taking graduate courses on optical microscopy, as well as advanced undergraduates, professionals, and researchers looking for an accessible introduction to the field.

Practical Optical Dimensional Metrology

Practical Optical Dimensional Metrology

Author: Kevin G. Harding Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/06/2019

Practical Optical Dimensional Metrology provides basic explanations of the operation and application of the most common methods in the field and in commercial use. The first half of the book presents a working knowledge of the mechanism and limitations of optical dimensional measurement methods that use: light level changes, two-dimensional imaging, triangulation, structured-light patterns, interference patterns, optical focus, light characteristics such as polarization, and hybrid methods with mechanical or other measurement tools. The book concludes with a series of manufacturing application examples that look at measurements from the centimeter range down to the nanometer range.

Fundamentals of Dispersive Optical Spectroscopy Systems

Fundamentals of Dispersive Optical Spectroscopy Systems

Author: Wilfried Neumann Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/05/2019

Bridging the gap between basic theoretical texts and specific system recommendations, Fundamentals of Dispersive Optical Spectroscopy Systems addresses the definition, design, justification, and verification of instrumentation for optical spectroscopy, with an emphasis on the application and realization of the technology. The optical spectroscopy solutions discussed within use dispersive spectrometers that primarily involve diffraction gratings. Topics include dispersive elements, detectors, illumination, calibration, and stray light. This book is suitable for students and for professionals looking for a comprehensive text that compares theoretical designs and physical reality during installation.

Fiber Optic Sensors Fundamentals and Applications

Fiber Optic Sensors Fundamentals and Applications

Author: Alexis Mendez, David A. Krohn, Trevor W. MacDougall Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/05/2019

This fourth edition of Fiber Optic Sensors is revised and updated to include the new sensing technologies emerging in broad commercial use, with a focus on scattering-based distributed sensing systems. In addition, a chapter was added to describe biophotonic sensing systems and their applications. This book covers a broad range of point sensors and distributed sensor technologies and their applications in a multiplicity of markets including energy, biomedical, smart structures, security, military, and process control. It illustrates how this portfolio of technologies has addressed many sensing problems that are difficult for conventional approaches and often require survival in extremely harsh conditions. With the addition of two authors who bring 75 years of combined experience in fiber optic sensor technology, this edition is a significant update and an excellent resource for any engineer who has an interest in advanced sensing systems.

Engineered Materials and Metamaterials Design and Fabrication

Engineered Materials and Metamaterials Design and Fabrication

Author: Richard A. Dudley, Michael A. Fiddy Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/05/2019

The field of metamaterials arose from a deepened understanding of how electromagnetic waves interact with materials and subwavelength-scale scattering structures. The exploitation of these more-complex material-wave interactions has generated much global research activity. We can, in principle, engineer materials to greatly extend the selection of those currently available. This Tutorial Text presents the electromagnetic properties of both naturally occurring and manmade materials, focusing especially on structured or engineered metamaterials. After a review of Maxwell's equations and material properties, the concepts of resonant meta-atoms and composite media are introduced. The fabrication of metamaterials and the properties of negative-index materials are explained. The difficulties associated with reducing the size of meta-atoms for use at optical frequencies are described, and the use of metamaterials for superresolution imaging is presented in some detail.
