The propagation of light in dispersive media is a subject of fundamental as well as practical importance. In recent years attention has focused in particular on media in which the refractive index can vary with frequency in such a way that the group velocities of optical pulses can be much greater or much smaller than the speed of light in vacuum, or in which the refractive index can be negative. This book treats these topics at an introductory to intermediate level, focusing on the basic theory but also describing the significant experimental progress made during the past decade. Consider

In 1910, the surgeons Moreau and LePrince wrote about their successful operation on an eight-year-old boy who had been blind since birth because of cataracts. When the boy’s eyes were healed they removed the bandages and, waving a hand in front of the child’s physically perfect eyes, asked him what he saw. "I don’t know," was his only reply. What he saw was only a varying brightness in front of him. However, when allowed to touch the hand as it began to move, he cried out in a voice of triumph, "It’s moving!" He could feel it move, but he still needed laboriously to lea

Designed as a text for a one-semester, nonmathematical optics course at the undergraduate level, this profusely illustrated text was written with art majors in mind, but is also suitable for students of fashion, theater, photography, and the liberal arts. The book is divided into four parts: Part I discusses the nature of light, including early ideas of light (a newly revised chapter for this edition), and classical and modern theories. Part II concerns the manipulation of light, including such topics as geometrical optics, polarization, lasers, and holography; Part 3 treats vision, including

Light and Light Sources gives an introduction to the working principles of high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps and points out challenges and problems associated with the development and operation of HID lamps. The state-of-the-art in electrode and plasma diagnostics as well as numerical methods used for the understanding of HID lamps are described. This volume addresses students as well as scientists and researchers at universities and in industry.

The face of the nocturnal metropolis is marked decisively by light, and the number and variety of the light sources is increasing to the point of "light terror. A well-lit urban space can be very inviting, giving residents and visitors a sense of well-being and security. A successful lighting design can also give the city at night an identity of its own and accentuate architectural qualities. In this book, the author embodies her many years of experience as a practitioner and teacher of lighting design. In preparation, she visited ten European cities including Paris, Brussels, Berlin, London,
