The Optics of Life: A Biologist's Guide to Light in Nature
Lowest new price: $34.08
Lowest used price: $42.56
List price: $52.50
Author: Sönke Johnsen
Brand: Princeton University Press

Opticsa field of physics focusing on the study of lightis also central to many areas of biology, including vision, ecology, botany, animal behavior, neurobiology, and molecular biology. The Optics of Life introduces the fundamentals of optics to biologists and nonphysicists, giving them the tools they need to successfully incorporate optical measurements and principles into their research. Sönke Johnsen starts with the basics, describing the properties of light and the units and geometry of measurement. He then explores how light is created and propagates and how it interacts with matter, covering topics such as absorption, scattering, fluorescence, and polarization. Johnsen also provides a tutorial on how to measure light as well as an informative discussion of quantum mechanics. The Optics of Life features a host of examples drawn from nature and everyday life, and several appendixes that offer further practical guidance for researchers. This concise book uses a minimum of equations and jargon, explaining the basic physics of light in a succinct and lively manner. It is the essential primer for working biologists and for anyone seeking an accessible introduction to optics.

Resonance: Applications in Physical Science
Lowest new price: $55.84
Lowest used price: $58.76
List price: $68.00
Author: Michael M Woolfson

This book explores a large number of resonance effects that occur both in everyday life and in scientific contexts. It is a topic that provides a crosslink between many branches of science and shows how a single scientific principle can manifest itself in many, apparently disparate, ways.
Resonance covers fields as diverse as civil engineering in relation to the safety of bridges, the quality of sound from musical instruments, the behaviour of electrical circuits, lasers, the orbits of solarsystem bodies, the scattering of Xrays from atoms and the exploration of the structures of molecules, atoms and nuclei.
The essential mathematics included should be accessible to any science undergraduate, no matter the discipline of their study. Problems and solutions are provided for every chapter to help reinforce understanding of the material.
Readership: Undergraduate students studying physics, especially in the fields of physical optics or electronspin resonance.


Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light, Second Edition
Lowest new price: $84.88
Lowest used price: $84.87
List price: $115.00
Author: John D. Joannopoulos

Since it was first published in 1995, Photonic Crystals has remained the definitive text for both undergraduates and researchers on photonic bandgap materials and their use in controlling the propagation of light. This newly expanded and revised edition covers the latest developments in the field, providing the most uptodate, concise, and comprehensive book available on these novel materials and their applications. Starting from Maxwell's equations and Fourier analysis, the authors develop the theoretical tools of photonics using principles of linear algebra and symmetry, emphasizing analogies with traditional solidstate physics and quantum theory. They then investigate the unique phenomena that take place within photonic crystals at defect sites and surfaces, from one to three dimensions. This new edition includes entirely new chapters describing important hybrid structures that use band gaps or periodicity only in some directions: periodic waveguides, photoniccrystal slabs, and photoniccrystal fibers. The authors demonstrate how the capabilities of photonic crystals to localize light can be put to work in devices such as filters and splitters. A new appendix provides an overview of computational methods for electromagnetism. Existing chapters have been considerably updated and expanded to include many new threedimensional photonic crystals, an extensive tutorial on device design using temporal coupledmode theory, discussions of diffraction and refraction at crystal interfaces, and more. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, Photonic Crystals is an indispensable resource for students and researchers.  Extensively revised and expanded
 Features improved graphics throughout
 Includes new chapters on photoniccrystal fibers and combined indexand bandgapguiding
 Provides an introduction to coupledmode theory as a powerful tool for device design
 Covers many new topics, including omnidirectional reflection, anomalous refraction and diffraction, computational photonics, and much more.

The Quantum Theory of Light (Oxford Science Publications)
Lowest new price: $51.98
Lowest used price: $42.00
List price: $95.00
Author: Rodney Loudon

This Third Edition, like its two predecessors, provides a detailed account of the basic theory needed to understand the properties of light and its interactions with atoms, in particular the many nonclassical effects that have now been observed in quantumoptical experiments. The earlier chapters describe the quantum mechanics of various optical processes, leading from the classical representation of the electromagnetic field to the quantum theory of light. The later chapters develop the theoretical descriptions of some of the key experiments in quantum optics. Over half of the material in this Third Edition is new. It includes topics that have come into prominence over the last two decades, such as the beamsplitter theory, squeezed light, twophoton interference, balanced homodyne detection, travellingwave attenuation and amplification, quantum jumps, and the ranges of nonlinear optical processes important in the generation of nonclassical light. The book is written as a textbook, with the treatment as a whole appropriate for graduate or postgraduate students, while earlier chapters are also suitable for finalyear undergraduates. Over 100 problems help to intensify the understanding of the material presented.
