Sharp Focusing of Laser Light

1st Edition

Victor V. Kotlyar, Sergey S. Stafeev, Anton Nalimov
November 14, 2019

Readers will learn in which ways light can be "confined" within a subwavelength region smaller than half a wavelength. Strictly within the focal spot, all degrees of freedom of light interact and manifest themselves in a dramatic way. The size and shape of the focal spot and the magnitude of...

Optical Inspection of Microsystems

1st Edition

Wolfgang Osten
October 17, 2019

Where conventional testing and inspection techniques fail at the micro-scale, optical techniques provide a fast, robust, and relatively inexpensive alternative for investigating the properties and quality of microsystems. Speed, reliability, and cost are critical factors in the continued scale-up...
