Description

This comprehensive introduction to polarized light provides students and researchers with the background and the specialized knowledge needed to fully utilize polarized light. It provides a basic introduction to the interaction of light with matter for those unfamiliar with photochemistry and photophysics. An in-depth discussion of polarizing optics is also given. Different analytical techniques are introduced and compared and introductions to the use of polarized light in various forms of spectroscopy are provided.

Key Features

  • Starts at a basic level and develops tools for research problems
  • Discusses practical devices for controlling polarized light
  • Compares the Jones, Mueller, and Poincaré sphere methods of analysis

Readership

Graduate students and researchers in chemistry, physics, and biophysics; optical engineers, photochemists, and spectroscopists.
