The Book of Optics (Arabic: كتاب المناظر ‎, romanized: Kitāb al-Manāẓir; Latin: De Aspectibus or Perspectiva; Italian: Deli Aspecti) is a seven-volume treatise on optics and other fields of study composed by the medieval Arab scholar Ibn al-Haytham, known in the West as Alhazen or Alhacen (–c. AD).. The Book of Optics presented experimentally founded arguments Author: Ibn al-Haytham.

Radiation and optics;: An introduction to the classical theoryAuthor: John M Stone. The reply to this questioning is made several times in the book and is that the Lorentz theory is still useful as a working tool, it provides an excellent foundation for the field of optics, and it is most valuable as background for the quantum theory of radiation and for many branches of physical Rating: % positive. Quantum Optics - by Marlan O. Scully September of physics continues on into the twentieth century with the ultraviolet catastrophe associated with black-body radiation on the one hand and the photoelectric effect on the other. Indeed, it was here that the era of quantum mechanics was initiated with Planck's introduction of the quantum.

A broad range of topics from modern optical engineering are addressed, ranging from geometrical optics and basic layout of electro-optical instruments, to the theory of imaging, radiation sources and radiation sensors, spectroscopy, and color vision and description of optical methods for measurements of numerous physical parameters (temperature. Gamma Radiation. This book brings new research insights on the properties and behavior of gamma radiation, studies from a wide range of options of gamma radiation applications in Nuclear Physics, industrial processes, Environmental Science, Radiation Biology, Radiation Chemistry, Agriculture and Forestry, sterilization, food industry, as well as the review of both advantages and problems that. Nonlinear Optics. Rapid development of optoelectronic devices and laser techniques poses an important task of creating and studying, from one side, the structures capable of effectively converting, modulating, and recording optical data in a wide range of radiation energy densities and frequencies, from another side, the new schemes and approaches capable to activate and simulate the modern. "An Introduction to X-ray Physics, Optics, and Applications presents an excellent overview of the basics of x-ray radiation and its generation in state-of-the-art laboratories, synchrotrons, and x-ray free electron lasers. Through a broad range of x-ray concepts, from the photoelectric effect to x-ray diffraction, the fundamentals of.

Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. Optics usually describes the behaviour of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light. Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic radiation such as X-rays, microwaves, and radio waves. Introduction to Applied Optics for Engineers introduces the reader to applied optics and presents ideas on coherent optical data processing. Topics covered include applications and approximations for radiation fields; physical realizations of phase transformers, lenses, and systems; applications of optical filtering to data processing; and partial coherence. The content of this book makes it suitable for a large audience, ranging from graduate students in health physics to researchers who want to learn more about the radiation protection concepts and regulatory applications.
