Optical Interferometry - 2nd edition

Optical Interferometry (ISBN10: 0080473644; ISBN13: 9780080473642)
ISBN13: 978-0080473642
ISBN10: 0080473644

Summary: When the first edition of ''Optical Interferometry'' was published, interferometry was regarded as a rather esoteric method of making measurements, largely confined to the laboratory. Today, however, besides its use in several fields of research, it has applications in fields as diverse as measurement of length and velocity, sensors for rotation, acceleration, vibration and electrical and magnetic fields, as well as in microscopy and nanotechnology. Most topics are discussed first at more a level accessible to anyone with a basic knowledge of physical optics, then a more detailed treatment of the topic is undertaken, and finally each topic is supplemented by a reference list of more than 1000 selected original publications in total. * Historical development of interferometry * The laser as a light source * Two-beam interference * Techniques for frequency stabilization * Coherence * Electronic phase measurements * Multiple-beam interference * Quantum effects in optical interference * Extensive coverage of the applications of interferometry, such as measurements of length, optical testing, interference microscopy, interference spectroscopy, Fourier-transform spectroscopy, interferometric sensors, nonlinear interferometers, stellar interferometry, and studies of space-time and gravitation. less
