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.

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.

TitleImpact of nonlinearities on fiber optic communications
Author(s)Shiva Kumar (ed.)
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xii, 543 p.)
Abstract NoteThis book covers the recent progress in fiber-optic communication systems with a main focus on the impact of fiber nonlinearities on system performance. There has been significant progress in coherent communication systems in the past few years due to the advances in digital signal processing techniques. This has led to renewed interest in fiber linear and nonlinear impairments as well as techniques to mitigate them in the electrical domain. In this book, the reader will find all the important topics of fiber optic communication systems in one place, with in-depth coverage by the experts of each sub-topic. Pioneers from each of the sub-topics have been invited to contribute. Each chapter will have a section on fundamentals as well as reviews of literature and of recent developments. Readers will benefit from this approach since many of the conference proceedings and journal articles mainly focus on the authors{u2019} research, without spending space on preliminaries

TitleLight scattering by systems of particles : null-field method with discrete sources : theory and programs
Author(s)A. Doicu;T. Wriedt;Y.A. Eremin
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2006.
Description1 online resource (xiii, 322 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract Note"Light Scattering by Systems of Particles comprehensively develops the theory of the null-field method, while covering almost all aspects and current applications. The "Null-field Method with Discrete Sources" is an extension of the Null-field Method (also called T-Matrix Method) to compute light scattering by arbitrarily shaped dielectric particles. This book-and-CD set also incorporates FORTRAN programs and exemplary simulation results that demonstrate all aspects of the latest developments of the method. The FORTRAN source programs included on the enclosed CD exemplifies the wide range of application of the T-matrix method. Worked examples of the application of the FORTRAN programs show readers how to adapt or modify the programs for their specific application."--Jacket
