NONIMAGING OPTICS

Photonics Spectra
Apr 2005
Elsevier.jpg Nonimaging Optics explores a growing field that is applicable to areas where the collection, concentration, transport and distribution of light is important. Applications include testing, measurement, signal detection, illumination optics and solar energy conversion. Incorporating advances in the subject, the 508-page work covers symmetry breaking, elaborations of the flow-line method, designs for prescribed irradiance and the simultaneous multiple surface design method. In a discussion on radiance, theory is connected with measurement in a physical way. Chapters also cover manufacturing tolerances and the global optimization of high-performance concentrators. Roland Winston et al; Elsevier Academic Press, Burlington, Mass., 2005; $89.95.


GLOSSARY
light
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
