- Duncan Steel, University of Michigan, USA
- Bob Guenther, Duke University, Durham, USA
The encyclopedia provides valuable reference material for those working in the field who wish to know more about a topic outside their area of expertise, as well as providing an authoritative reference source for students and researchers. Undergraduate students should find it a useful source of material, as will teachers and lecturers. It will also be useful at the postgraduate level for summarizing a broad range of theoretical topics, for practical advice on research techniques and for insights into new ways of approaching research problems. Subjects covered: light and optics, lasers, optical fibers, and optical fiber systems, optical materials, and LED's, and applications of all these in control and manufacturing, data processing and storage, applications in environment, engineering, defence, ocean study, medicine and biology.Also available online via ScienceDirect featuring extensive browsing, searching, and internal cross-referencing between articles in the work, plus dynamic linking to journal articles and abstract databases, making navigation flexible and easy.

"Among reference sources for optics, none offers this set's depth of coverage across many disciplines: physics, engineering, information processing, imaging, materials, and nonlinear optics. (...) Highly recommended". (A. N. Murrell, New Mexico State University, 2005 sep CHOICE ) "(...) you will find answers to many questions you might have in optics, thus it can be recommended (...) to the libraries of the institutes who have to be up to date in modern optics" (CIE NEWS, 73, 2005, JS) Electronic version available on ScienceDirect.com
- The encyclopedia will be divided into 3000-4000 word articles with large subject areas being sub-divided and covered by a number of articles.
