Red giant and supergiant stars have long been favorites of professional 6 and amateur astronomers. These enormous stars emit up to 10 times more energy than the Sun and, so, are easy to study. Some of them, specifically the pulsating long-period variables, significantly change their size, brightness, and color within about a year, a time scale of interest to a single human being. Some aspects of the study of red giant stars are similar to the study of pre-main-sequence stars. For example, optical …

Photonic Crystal Fibres describes the fundamental properties of the optical waveguides known under the terms of photonic crystal fibres, microstructured fibres, or holey fibres. It outlines how the fibres are designed and fabricated, and how they are treated from a theoretical and numerical point of view. The book presents a detailed description of the different classes of photonic crystal and photonic bandgap fibres, and it broadens out a spectrum of novel applications and new fibre types. …

Over the past decade or more, the art relating to modern optical waveguides has evolved as a nighly focused interdis­ ciplinary field, so attractive, stimulating and full of far­ reachin3 promise that no parallel could be found earlier in other branches of applied sciences except, perhaps, in solid­ state electronics and computer technology. This Proceedings, with a selection of 53 papers and briefs by 96 authors of 16 countries, is of real internation­ al dimensions. It is the outgrowth of the …

Interest world-wide in the provision of new observational astro­ nomical facilities in the form of ground-based optical telescopes of large aperture has never been higher than exists at present. The benefits to be gained from increased aperture size, however, are only utilised effectively if efficient instrumentation is also available. There have been significant improvements recently in this area, part­ icularly in detector technology and data handling as well as in optical design, so that systems …

In the last few years, the world of information networks has undergone significant changes that will revolutionize the future of communications. Data rates have reached the gigabit per second range. Optical fibers have become the transmission medium of choice. Standardization activities have very aggressively produced a set of well established standard for future LANs, MANs and WANs. It has become very difficult for computer and communications professionals to follow these rapidly evolving technologies …

This book deals with optical properties of semiconductors at extremely short (pico- and femtosecond) time scales. The contributions, by an international roster of researchers, cover current research on a wide array of topics. Topics covered include: 1. Coherent Dynamics of Photoexcited Semiconductor Superlattices with Applied Homogeneous Electric Fields (Koch,Meier,Thomas) 2. Ultrafast non-equilibrium dynamics of intersubband excitations in quasi two dimensional semiconductors (Elsaesser,Woerner …

(3) Barut contributes a comprehensive review of his own ambitious program in electron theory and quantum electrodynamics. Barut s work is rich with ingenious ideas, and the interest it provokes among other theorists can be seen in the cri tique by Grandy. Cooperstock takes a much different approach to nonlinear field-electron coupling which leads him to conclusions about the size of the …

The past decade has seen a remarkable increase in the use of electron microscopy as a researm tool in biology and medicine. Thus, most institu­ tions of higher learning now boast several electron optical laboratories having various levels of sophistication. Training in the routine use of elec­ tron optical equipment and interpretation of results is no longer restricted to a few prestigious centers. On the other hand, temniques utilized by researm workers in the ultrastructural domain have become …

Measurement of Image Velocity presents a computational framework for computing motion information from sequences of images. Its specific goal is the measurement of image velocity (or optical flow), the projection of 3-D object motion onto the 2-D image plane. The formulation of the problem emphasizes the geometric and photometric properties of image formation, and the occurrence of multiple image velocities caused, for example, by specular reflections, shadows, or transparency. The method proposed …

With the advent of lasers, numerous applications of it such as optical information processing, holography, and optical communication have evolved. These applications have made the study of optics essential for scientists and engineers. The present volume, intended for senior under­ graduate and first-year graduate students, introduces basic concepts neces­ sary for an understanding of many of these applications. The book has grown out of lectures given at the Master s level to students of applied …

Sudden Ionospheric Disturbances resulting from an interaction of the Solar Flare radiation with the constituents of the upper atmosphere constitute one of the three major aspects of ground level monitoring of solar flares -the other two being optical observations of flares, and the observations of solar bursts in radio wavelengths. SIDs, therefore, form a major part of flare monitoring programme in many observatories. Unlike the other two, however, the ionospheric effects of flares provide one major …

This volwne contains the Proceedings of a two-week summer conference titled Advances in Integrated Optics held June 1-9, 1993, in Erice, Sicily. This was the 18th annual course organized by the International School of Quantum Electronics, under the auspices of the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture. The term Integrated Optics signifies guided-wave optical circuits consisting of two or more devices on a single substrate. Since its inception in the late 1960 s, Integrated Optics has evolved …
