Infrared Thermal Imaging
Fundamentals, Research and Applications
2. Edition December 2017
794 Pages, Hardcover
650 Pictures (620 Colored Figures)
This new up-to-date edition of the successful handbook and ready reference retains the proven concept of the first, covering basic and advanced methods and applications in infrared imaging from two leading expert authors in the field.
All chapters have been completely revised and expanded and a new chapter has been added to reflect recent developments in the field and report on the progress made within the last decade.
In addition there is now an even stronger focus on real-life examples, with 20% more case studies taken from science and industry. For ease of comprehension the text is backed by more than 590 images which include graphic visualizations and more than 300 infrared thermography figures. The latter include many new ones depicting, for example, spectacular views of phenomena in nature, sports, and daily life.

Klaus-Peter Möllmann received his PhD from the Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany, studying strongly doped narrow band semiconductors at low temperatures and later, for his habilitation, MCT photo detectors. He subsequently held positions with the Humboldt University and with several businesses in industry. Professor Möllmann's research interests include MEMS technology, infrared thermal imaging, and spectroscopy. He is the co-author of about 150 scientific and didactical papers.
Both authors are professors of experimental physics at the University of Applied Sciences in Brandenburg, Germany.
