List price: $69.99
Author: Frank L. Pedrotti
Introduction to Optics is now available in a re-issued edition from Cambridge University Press. Designed to offer a comprehensive and engaging introduction to intermediate and upper level undergraduate physics and engineering students, this text also allows instructors to select specialized content to suit individual curricular needs and goals. Specific features of the text, in terms of coverage beyond traditional areas, include extensive use of matrices in dealing with ray tracing, polarization, and multiple thin-film interference; three chapters devoted to lasers; a separate chapter on the optics of the eye; and individual chapters on holography, coherence, fiber optics, interferometry, Fourier optics, nonlinear optics, and Fresnel equations.
|Introduction to Modern Optics (Dover Books on Physics)
Lowest new price: $12.35
Lowest used price: $2.49
List price: $19.95
Author: Grant R. Fowles
Brand: Dover Publications
This incisive text provides a basic undergraduate-level course in modern optics for students in physics, technology and engineering. The first half of the book deals with classical physical optics; the second principally with the quantum nature of light. Chapters 1 and 2 treat the propagation of light waves, including the concepts of phase and group velocities, and the vectorial nature of light. Chapter 3 applies the concepts of partial coherence and coherence length to the study of interference, and Chapter 4 takes up multiple-beam interference and includes Fabry-Perot interferometry and multilayer-film theory. Diffraction and holography are the subjects of Chapter 5, and the propagation of light in material media (including crystal and nonlinear optics) are central to Chapter 6. Chapters 7 and 8 introduce the quantum theory of light and elementary optical spectra, and Chapter 9 explores the theory of light amplification and lasers. Chapter 10 briefly outlines ray optics in order to introduce students to the matrix method for treating optical systems and to apply the ray matrix to the study of laser resonators.
Many applications of the laser to the study of optics are integrated throughout the text. The author assumes students have had an intermediate course in electricity and magnetism and some advanced mathematics beyond calculus. For classroom use, a list of problems is included at the end of each chapter, with selected answers at the end of the book.

Author: Roy S. Berns
Fully updated-the classic comprehensive introduction to colortechnology
The Third Edition of Billmeyer and Saltzman's Principles of ColorTechnology combines the clarity and ease of use of earlier editionswith two decades of advancement in the theory and technology ofcolor. Defining color as "a certain kind of light, its effect onthe human eye, or (most important of all) the result of this effectin the mind of the viewer," the book offers detailed coverage ofcolor, colorants, the coloring of materials, and reproducing thecolor of materials through imaging.
While retaining important material on the color technology ofpaints, plastics, textiles, and other materials, the Third Editionfeatures in-depth coverage of computer-generated color, digitalimage capture, desktop color printing, and colormanagement-achieving color fidelity among scanners, digitalcameras, and other color imaging devices. The new edition ofPrinciples of Color Technology offers expanded coverage thatincludes:
* Measuring color quality-a new chapter describes the principlesand applications of setting instrumental color tolerances
* Mathematics of color technology-a new appendix presentsprinciples of color technology using mathematics
* Color modeling-additional material covers CRT displays and colorprinting
Supplemented with copious numerical examples, graphs, andillustrations that clarify and explain complex material, as well asside bars that present technical details in a well-organized,accessible manner, this excellent and exciting introduction fornewcomers to the field is also a valuable reference for experiencedcolor technologists, color specialists, chemical and industrialengineers, computer scientists, research scientists, andmathematicians interested in color.
|The Day-Glo Brothers: The True Story of Bob and Joe Switzer's Bright Ideas and Brand-New Colors

Brand: Barton, Chris/ Persiani, Tony (ILT)
A discovery that made the world a brighter place!
Joe and Bob Switzer were very different brothers. Bob was a studious planner who wanted to grow up to be a doctor. Joe dreamed of making his fortune in show business and loved magic tricks and problem-solving.
When an accident left Bob recovering in a darkened basement, the brothers began experimenting with ultraviolet light and fluorescent paints. Together they invented a whole new kind of color, one that glows with an extra-special intensity—Day-Glo.
This cover reproduction is not printed with Day-Glo colors. The actual book, however, is printed using three Day-Glo colors: Saturn Yellow, Fire Orange, and Signal Green.

|Introduction to Mineralogy
Lowest new price: $126.81
Lowest used price: $25.42
List price: $161.95
Author: William Nesse
The second edition of Introduction to Mineralogy follows the highly successful first edition, which become an overnight market leader. Introduction to Mineralogy consolidates much of the material now covered in traditional mineralogy and optical mineralogy courses and focuses on describing minerals within their geologic context. It presents the important traditional content of mineralogy including crystallography, chemical bonding, controls on mineral structure, mineral stability, and crystal growth to provide a foundation that enables students to understand the nature and occurrence of minerals. Physical, optical, and X-ray powder diffraction techniques of mineral study are described in detail, and common chemical analytical methods are outlined as well. Detailed descriptions of over 100 common minerals are provided, and the geologic context within which these minerals occur is emphasized. Appendices provide tables and diagrams to help students with mineral identification, using both physical and optical properties. Numerous line drawings, photographs, and photomicrographs help make complex concepts understandable. Introduction to Mineralogy is available with Daniel Schulze's An Atlas of Minerals in Thin Section for a nominal additional fee.

Lowest used price: $56.97
List price: $98.50
Author: Nicholas J. Turro
Brand: Brand: University Science Books
This book develops photochemical and photophysical concepts from a small set of familiar principles. Derived in part from Nick Turro s best-selling text for three decades Modern Molecular Photochemistry this updated primer introduces an initial paradigm that relates the photon and a reactant molecular structure to photochemistry through the structure and dynamics of electronically excited states, reactive intermediates and products. The same paradigm is readily adapted to incorporate the photon and a reactant molecular structure to photophysics. The book provides brilliantly clear descriptions in pictorial terms that can be readily understood by the student and applied to systems of interest. This text will be of interest to not only practicing photochemists and their students, but also to biological scientists, polymer scientists, material scientists and nanoscientists who use photochemistry and photophysics in their research and teaching.
