This book is intended as an undergraduate textbook in electrodynamics at basic or advanced level. The objective is to attain a general understanding of the electrodynamic theory and its basic experiments and phenomena in order to form a foundation for further studies in the engineering sciences as well as in modern quantum physics. The outline of the book is obtained from the following principles:... more...

Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century, and probably the most influential book in optics published in the past forty years. This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new material covering the CAT scan, interference with broad-band light and the so-called Rayleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction theory. This edition also details scattering from inhomogeneous media and presents an account of the... more...

Opticks, Newton's most popular book, is a complex work of genius and the fruit of forty years of thought and investigation. Newton devoted various periods of experimentation to this final expression of his life's work and drew on the results of successive interactions with other scientists and thinkers. This introduction to his book disentangles the different layers of Newton's thought processes in terms of his contemporary influences, and details the... more...

R. Shankar, a well-known physicist and contagiously enthusiastic educator, was among the first to offer a course through the innovative Open Yale Course program. His popular online video lectures on introductory physics have been viewed over a million times. In this second book based on his online Yale course, Shankar explains essential concepts, including electromagnetism, optics, and quantum mechanics.    The book begins... more...

Covers Fourier transformation and Fourier series with a particular emphasis on window functions. Written for students and practitioners who deal with Fourier transformation. Including many illustrations and easy-to-solve exercises Presents serious science in an amusing way


This book helps you make good lighting decisions and will be a very useful hands-on tool for anyone involved with engineering, maintenance, purchasing, specification, retrofits, remodels, and new construction for interior or exterior lighting applications. It gives very practical ways to maintain and update existing lighting systems and how to plan for the future. Key points include LED lighting, maintenance costs, achieving low power... more...

This volume includes a comprehensive theoretical treatment and current state-of-the art applications of the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM). It discusses interface circuits and the study of viscoelasticity and micromechanics as well as surface roughness with the QCM. Coverage also details the broad field of analytical applications of piezoelectric sensors.

This volume is the eighth of a well-established series devoted to inelastic light scattering by solids, both as a physical effect and as a spectroscopic technique. It appears jointly with volume VII and can be considered to be its continuation. Emphasis is placed on fullerenes, Raman spectroscopy of semiconductors, surfaces, and interfaces, and coherent phonons. A survey of some of the progress in other aspects of Raman spectroscopy, in particular in... more...

This book describes the state of the art in the field of bioanalytical nano- and microsystems with optical functionality. In 12 chapters distinguished scientists and leaders in their respective fields show how various optical technologies have been miniaturized and integrated over the last few decades in order to be combined with nano- and microsystems for applications in the life sciences. The main detection and characterization... more...

This is a comprehensive treatment of the field of SPR sensors, in three parts. Part I introduces principles of surface plasmon resonance bio-sensors, electromagnetic theory of surface plasmons, theory of SPR sensors and molecular interactions at sensor surfaces. Part II examines the development of SPR sensor instrumentation and functionalization methods. Part III reviews applications of SPR biosensors in the study of molecules, and in environmental... more...
