With about 100 expert articles in 5 volumes, this is both a comprehensive review as well as an introduction to the entire field. The contributions range from classical optics right up to the latest applications, including:
· IT and telecommunications
· Optical sensing and metrology
· Material processing
· Optical components and systems
· Laser design and technology.
The international editor team paid great attention to ensuring fast access to the information, and each carefully reviewed article features:
· an abstract
· a detailed table of contents
· continuous cross-referencing
· references to the most relevant publications in the field, and
· suggestions for further reading, both introductory as well as highly specialized.
In addition, a comprehensive index provides easy access to the enormous number of key words beyond the 100 headlines.
The result is a rapid reference for skilled professionals on all topics of modern photonics, while newcomers from physics and engineering will appreciate the readily comprehensible style and structure.
