Description

This is the third volume of the very successful set. This updated volume will contain non-linear properties of some of the most useful materials as well as chapters on optical measurement techniques.

Key Features

@bul:* Contributors have decided the best values for n and k

  • References in each critique allow the reader to go back to the original data to examine and understand where the values have come from
  • Allows the reader to determine if any data in a spectral region needs to be filled in
  • Gives a wide and detailed view of experimental techniques for measuring the optical constants n and k
  • Incorporates and describes crystal structure, space-group symmetry, unit-cell dimensions, number of optic and acoustic modes, frequencies of optic modes, the irreducible representation, band gap, plasma frequency, and static dielectric constant

Readership

This book has a broad market which includes professionals working with optics (applications, calculations, research, design), Optical Society of America members, and SPIE members.

About the Editor

Edward Palik

Edward D. Palik received his B.S. in Physics 1950, his M.S. in 1952, and his Ph.D. in 1955 from Ohio State University. He specialized in far-infrared spectroscopy and was assistant professor at Ohio State University during 1955–1956. He was a NSF fellow at the University of Michigan in 1956 and 1957 and a General Motors Fellow at Ohio State University from 1957–1958. He became an NRC Fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory in 1958 and soon converted to a research physicist in 1959. During the rest of his career at NRL he worked in magnetooptics of semiconductors, for which he was awarded the Hulburt Award in 1964. This is the highest internal scientific award given at the Naval Research Laboratory. He also worked on the optical properties of semiconductors, total-internal-reflection spectroscopy studies of surface polaritons, cathodoluminescence studies of solids, and orientation-dependent etching of silicon in aqueous potassium-hydroxide solutions.He was editor for the first years of the newsletter of the Far Infrared and Submillimeter Wave Technical Group of the OSA. After his retirement in 1988, he joined the Institute for Physical Science and Technology at the University of Maryland as a part-time research associate. While there he carried out Brillouin-scattering studies of solids and studies of defects in Fabry Perot plates.

Reviews

@qu:"This book will serve as a useful reference. The editor and contributors deserve a measure of thanks for their effort to facilitate for us the finding values of the optical constants of 37 solids and for providing an in-one-place summary of several techniques for determination of n and k." @source:--R.M.A. Azzam and Jacqueline Casset in APPLIED OPTICS @qu:"The beauty of this book is in the breadth of the spectral range covered....The value of this compilation of critically reviewed optical data far outweighs the book's deficiencies and...this handbook must be regarded as a necessity in any physics or materials science reference library." @source:--David M. Roessler, General Motors Research Laboratories, Warren, Michigan, in OPTICAL NEWS @qu:"The editor prepared a table that summarizes the optical properties of the materials reviewed in Volumes. I and II. The amount of the detail that it contains is truly astounding....There is a fundamental reason why a book of this type is much more useful than an abbreviated compilation....The book is attractive to workers in many fields because of the vast range of the data." @source:--Philip Baumeister, Coherent Auburn Group, Auburn, California, in OPTICS AND PHOTONICS NEWS @qu:"This book is an essential addition to every scientific reference library and to the bookshelves of all who are interested in what is loosely referred to as 'the optical properties of solids'." @source:--B.L. EVANS, University of Reading, U.K.
