Optical Sources, Detectors, and Systems
Fundamentals and Applications
- Robert Kingston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The audience includes researchers, graduate and post-graduate students, and practicing engineers and scientists dealing with optical and optoelectronic devices and their applications in both the physics and engineering communities. Thus, along with individual buyers, the market includes industry, bookstores, and libraries. Although it might be used by college juniors and seniors specializing in optics and optical engineering, reviewers of the text suggest it is better suited for adoption by graduate-level courses on optoelectronics, optical sources and systems, and optical detection. The mailing lists for the Optical Society of America and SPIE should be used (partly supplied by the author).
