SPIE-Press_FG11.jpgThe 152-page Field Guide to Illumination covers traditional illumination in imaging systems as well as advances in the computer-aided design of high-efficiency nonimaging illumination optics, along with source models that support these techniques. Chapters focus on areas such as color, nonimaging compound concentrators, illumination properties of materials, sources for illumination, classic illumination design and fibers, lightpipes and lightguides. Sections also address backlit displays, architectural illumination, light and visual performance, a luminaire for an open plan office, and exterior and roadway lighting. A bibliography and an index are provided. Angelo V. Arecchi, Tahar Messadi and R. John Koshel; SPIE Press, Bellingham, Wash., 2007; $32, members; $37, nonmembers.

Photonics Spectra
Nov 2007
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
