TitleEyes on the sky: A Spectrum of Telescope
Author(s)Francis Graham-Smith
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2016.
Descriptionxv, 235p.
Abstract NoteFour centuries ago, Galileo first turned a telescope to look up at the night sky. His discoveries opened the cosmos, revealing the geometry and dynamics of the solar system. Today's telescopic equipment, stretching over the whole spectrum from visible light to radio and millimetre astronomy, through infrared to ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays, has again transformed our understanding of the whole Universe. In this book Francis Graham-Smith explains how this technology can be engaged to give us a more in-depth picture of the nature of the universe. Looking at both ground-based telescopes and telescopes on spacecraft, he analyses their major discoveries, from planets and pulsars to cosmology. Large research teams and massive data handling are necessary, but the excitement of discovery is increasingly shared by a growing public, who can even join in some of the analysis by remote computer techniques. Observational astronomy has become international. All major projects are now partnerships; most notably the Square Kilometre Array, which will involve astronomers from over 100 countries and will physically exist in several of them. Covering the history and development of telescopes from Galileo to the present day, Eyes on the Sky traces what happens when humankind looks up.

TitleAstronomical optics and elasticity theory : active optics methods
Author(s)by G�erard Ren�e Lemaitre
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2009.
Description1 online resource (xxi, 573 p.) : ill
Abstract NotePresents an introduction to optics and elasticity. This book discusses variable curvature and multimode deformable mirrors, as well as, in depth, active optics, its theory and applications. It also covers optical design utilizing the Schmidt concept and various types of Schmidt correctors, as well as the elasticity theory of thin plates
Contents NoteIntroduction to optics and elasticity -- Dioptrics and elasticity : variable curvature morrors (VCMs) -- Active optics and correction of third-order aberrations -- Optical design with the Schmidt concept : telescopes and spectrographs -- Schmidt correctors and diffraction gratings aspherized by active optics -- Theory of shells and aspherization of axisymmetirc mirrors : meniscus, vase and closed forms -- Active optics with multimode deformable mirrors (MDM) vase and mensicus forms -- Own weight flexure and figure control of telescope mirrors -- Singlet lenses and elasticity theory of thin plates -- X-ray telescopes and elasticity theory of shells
