TitleLight and its many wonders
Author(s)Ajoy Ghatak (ed.);Anirban Pathak (ed.);V. P. Sharma (ed.)
PublicationNew Delhi, Viva Books, 2015.
Descriptionxx, 483p.
Abstract NoteThe United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light (IYL 2015). The IYL was to recognize the tremendous applications of light in our everyday lives: from the benefits of sunlight, to the intricate processes in our eyes, to holography, to fiber optic communications across oceans, to extremely important applications of lasers from eye surgery to drilling holes in steel and to numerous other areas. From its inception, The National Academy of Sciences, India (the oldest Science Academy in India) is committed to bringing scientific developments to the benefit of the society at large. Keeping this in mind, and as a part of the celebration of IYL 2015, the Academy entrusted the editors to bring out a book in which various aspects of light and light-based technologies will be lucidly described by experts with the aim to enthuse young students, teachers and the general public to get interested in studying more about light and be aware of its phenomenal applications. The editors were very fortunate to get a large number of experts to agree to contribute to this book. Of course, there are many other very interesting areas which could have been covered. We hope that the book will be able to enthuse the younger generation to study more about light.

TitleExperiments with light
Author(s)Ajoy Ghatak
PublicationNew Delhi, Viva Books, 2015.
Descriptionx, 142p.+DVD
Abstract NoteEver since the fabrication of the first laser in 1960, research and development in the area of optics has grown with tremendous rapidity. Optics has now become an extremely important area of study in schools, colleges and universities. Furthermore, because of numerous applications of optics, the United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015). There will be yearlong festivals associated with the International Year of Light. The present book (written primarily to enthuse young students to study more about light) is a part of the celebration of the International Year of Light.
Contents Note1. Power Point slides of all diagrams & photographs in the book 2. Power Point slides of a few animations explaining the concepts. 3.

TitleLet there be light: The Story of Light from Atoms to Galaxies
Author(s)Alex Montwill;Ann Breslin
Edition2nd.
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2013.
Descriptionxix, 529p.
Abstract NoteThis book is the first of its kind devoted to the key role played by light and electromagnetic radiation in the universe. Readers are introduced to philosophical hypotheses such as the economy, symmetry and the universality of natural laws, and are then guided to practical consequences such as the rules of geometrical optics and even Einstein's well-known but mysterious relationship, E = mc2. Most chapters feature a pen picture of the life and character of a relevant scientific figure. These ‘Historical Interludes’ include, among others, Galileo's conflicts with the Inquisition, Fourier's taunting of the guillotine, Neils Bohr and World War II, and the unique character of Richard Feynman. The second edition has been revised and made more accessible to the general reader. Whenever possible, the mathematical material of the first edition has been replaced by appropriate text to give a verbal account of the mystery of the phenomenon of light and how its understanding has developed from pre-historic to present times. The emphasis is on reading for interest and enjoyment; formulae or equations which underpin and reinforce the argument are presented in a form which does not interfere with the flow of the text.

TitlePhysics in the arts
Author(s)P. U. P. A. Gilbert;W. Haeberli
EditionRev. ed.
PublicationWaltham, Academic press, 2012.
Descriptionxiii, 312p.
Series(Complementary Science Series)
Abstract NoteA deep yet accessible analysis of the physics of light and sound, and how our eyes and ears detect them, is not only intellectually enjoyable, but also useful to understand and interpret the world in which we live, all the phenomena that take place around us, and how we perceive them. In short, how we interface with our planet, its inhabitants, and their creations. Understanding the physics of light and sound may also increase the appreciation for works of art and for art itself, and even stimulate the artists among the readers to deepen their knowledge of their media, of how people interface with them, and perhaps improve their art production.
