Description

In the 50 years since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science. The volumes in this series that have appeared up to now contain more than 300 review articles by distinguished research workers, which have become permanent records for many important developments, helping optical scientists and optical engineers stay abreast of their fields.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive, in-depth reviews
  • Edited by the leading authority in the field

Readership

Researchers, professors, (post) graduate students, Academic and corporate libraries in the field of optics
