Nov 2006
Wiley.gifCovering the interaction of light and matter, including theory, practical consequences and applications, Light and Matter: Electromagnetism, Optics, Spectroscopy and Lasers provides an introduction to the nature of light and to processes that occur as light travels through matter. Intended mainly for scientists and engineers, including graduate and undergraduate students in physics, chemistry, materials science and electrical engineering, the 655-page resource includes sections about nonlinear optics, quantum-optical processes and light propagation in optical fibers. Numerous examples are provided, along with references and a bibliography. Yehuda B. Band; John Wiley & Sons Ltd., Chichester, UK, 2006; $75, paperback.

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.
