DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ea18a6/introduction_to_mi) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Introduction to Micro- and Nanooptics" to their offering.
This first textbook on both micro- and nanooptics introduces readers to the technological development, physical background and key areas.
The opening chapters on the physics of light are complemented by chapters on refractive and diffractive optical elements. The internationally renowned authors present different methods of lithographic and nonlithographic fabrication of microoptics and introduce the characterization and testing of microoptics.
The second part of the book is dedicated to optical microsystems and MEMS, optical waveguide structures and optical nanostructures, including photonic crystals and metamaterials. The whole is rounded off by three appendices on Fourier mathematics, integration using the method of stationary phase and optical simulation techniques.
Each chapter includes exercises illustrating a sample approach to new and complex topics, plus solutions -- making the textbook suitable for lectures on optics as part of a physics or electrical engineering course.
Key Topics Covered:
- Light propagation
- Light as carrier of information and energy
- Silicon micromachining for otpical MEMS
- Refractive (micro)optics
- Diffractive microoptics
- Tunable microoptics
- Characterization and testing of microoptics
- Optical microsystems
- Optical waveguide structures
- Photonic crystals
- Left-handed materials - negative-index materials
