Practical Opto-Electronics : An Illustrated Guide for the Laboratory, Hardback Book

Practical Opto-Electronics : An Illustrated Guide for the Laboratory Hardback

Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences series


This book explains how to create opto-electronic systems in a most efficient way, avoiding typical mistakes.

It covers light detection techniques, imaging, interferometry, spectroscopy, modulation-demodulation, heterodyning, beam steering and many other topics common to laboratory applications.

The focus is made on self-explanatory figures rather than on words.

The book guides the reader through the entire process of creating problem-specific opto-electronic systems, starting from optical source, through beam transportation optical arrangement, to photodetector and data acquisition system.

The relevant basics of beam propagation and computer-based raytracing routines are also explained, and sample codes are listed. the book teaches important know-how and practical tricks that are never disclosed in scientific publications.

The book can become the reader's personal adviser in the world of opto-electronics and navigator in the ocean of the market of optical components and systems. Succinct, well-illustrated and clearly written, this book is helpful for students, postgraduates, engineers and researches working not only in the field of applied optics but also in high-tech industry, information technology, medicine, biology and other domains.
