This book introduces double-prism multi-mode scanning theory and technology, focusing on double Risley-prism, multi-mode scanning models, methods and key techniques applied in multi-mode optical scanning and target tracking fields. It is first book to systematically and comprehensively describe basic multi-mode scanning theory and practical implementation techniques utilizing double Risley prisms. It includes rigorous modeling of double Risley-prism multi-mode scanning systems and high-efficiency solution algorithms for inverse problems with abundant illustrative examples and scanning error analyses, along with design guidance and performance test on specific scanning devices. Further, it presents the latest research results for forward scanning models and inverse tracking algorithms, sub-microradian fine scanning modeling with tilting double Risley prisms, nonlinear control strategy for double prism motion, calibration and experiment techniques for various double-prism layouts, as well as opto-mechanical system design and analysis. Featuring rigorous theoretical derivations illustrated with corresponding examples and original scanning apparatus, the book is a valuable reference resource for those developing and applying multi-mode scanning techniques in photoelectric scanning and tracking areas.

This book contains proposals to redesign the scanning electron microscope, so that it is more compatible with other charged particle beam instrumentation and analytical techniques commonly used in surface science research. It emphasizes the concepts underlying spectrometer designs in the scanning electron microscope, and spectrometers are discussed under one common framework so that their relative strengths and weaknesses can be more readily appreciated. This is done, for the most part, through simulations and derivations carried out by the author himself.The book is aimed at scientists, engineers and graduate students whose research area or study in some way involves the scanning electron microscope and/or charged particle spectrometers. It can be used both as an introduction to these subjects and as a guide to more advanced topics about scanning electron microscope redesign.
This book collects a number of papers presented at the 13th Italian Conference on Sensors and Microsystems. It provides a unique perspective on the research and development of sensors, microsystems and related technologies in Italy. Besides the scientific value of the papers, this book offers a unique source of data to analysts that intend to survey the Italian situation on sensors and microsystems.
