Reviews

“No volume of Progress in Optics needs a long review: you just need to know that a new one has appeared and to make sure your librarian has a standing order.” -- Applied Optics “Such is the standard of the series PROGRESS IN OPTICS that the arrival of a further volume is cause for celebration: one is never disappointed. As usual ... the authors are generally people who have themselves made valuable contributions to their fields of study, leading to articles with the stamp of authority.” -- Optica Acta, now Journal of Modern Optics
