Treatise on Materials Science and Technology, Volume 12: Glass I: Interaction with Electromagnetic Radiation focuses on the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with glass. The book discusses the optical absorption of glasses; the photochromic glass; and the anomalous birefringence in oxide glasses. The text also describes the light scattering of glass; the resonance effects in glasses; as well as the dielectric characteristics of glass. Materials scientists, materials engineers, and graduate students taking related courses will find the book useful.

    Old but still relevant.

    This book gives detailed description of basic optical and dielectric properties of glasses. This book is still very relevant today, although published 40 years ago.
