Interferometry (Cambridge Studies in Modern Optics)Code: INS0200
Auteurs: W. H. Steel
Uitgever: Cambridge University Press
This is an extensively revised, updated and enlarged edition of Dr Steel's popular textbook on interferometry. The book provides a general treatment that brings together the many different applications of the interference of electromagnetic waves. The applications can cover precise measurement of length, the testing of optical components against a computed hologram, measurements of atmospheric pollution by infrared spectroscopy, and the measurement of the size of visible stars. These apparently unrelated methods have a common theory, which the book presents and extends to each main field of application.
This text has been revised throughout and major additions have been made to reflect the phenomenal growth of laser techniques and applications. The book provides a general treatment that brings together the many different applications of the interference of light waves, light being used in its most general sense to include all electromagnetic radiation.
