This new edition updates the technologies that deal with the characterization of the thermal infrared radiation contrast between ground targets and backgrounds. Samples have been updated to comply with the current status of technology in sensor systems and countermeasures. New topics on mine detection and polarization have been included, and the section covering multispectral camouflage of personnel has been extended. The basic principles and meteorological parameters are presented, followed by calibration procedures, signature measurements, and data analyses.
The use of image stabilization has grown to the point that it is now a common component of modern optical systems for imaging, communications, and remote-sensing applications. The benefits of image stabilization to astronomical research alone are so rich that it is common for astronomical telescopes, built over the last century, to be retrofitted with fast steering mirrors and tip-tilt sensors to extend their useful lifetimes. This text provides the basics of image stabilization starting with a consideration of the cause of image blurring and an introduction to the components commonly used in constructing a stabilized imaging system. With this foundation, an example image stabilized system is described and used to introduce some of the important parameters in evaluating the performance of image stabilization systems. As image stabilization systems are key components of adaptive optics systems, the more sophisticated sensing and correction devices used in this area are briefly addressed. Rather than being a mathematical, rigorous treatment of image stabilization, it provides the basic ideas in an easy-to-read format.
Ten years after the publication of Infrared Optics and Zoom Lenses, this text is still the only current publication devoted exclusively to infrared zoom lenses. This updated second edition includes 18 new refractive and reflective infrared zoom systems, bringing the total number of infrared zoom optical systems to 41 systems. Other additions include a section on focal plane arrays and a new closing chapter specifically devoted to applications of infrared zoom lenses. Coverage of wavelength region has been expanded to include the near infrared. Additional topics include an examination of the importance of principal planes, methods for athermalization by means of computer glass substitution, and global optimization techniques for zoom lens design.
Polarimetric remote sensing offers the potential to provide a new dimension for observations of the Earth. This book takes a systems approach to the physical processes involved with formation, collection, and analysis of polarimetric remote sensing data in the visible through longwave infrared. The emphasis is on Earth observation at human scales (ground sample distances of fractions of a meter to tens of meters) where the contrast between manmade objects and natural backgrounds are typical subjects of interest. This text is targeted at individuals with a sound quantitative understanding of remote sensing who need an introduction to polarimetric signals as they relate to remote sensing. It includes a brief review of the polarized nature of electromagnetic energy and radiometry and introduces ways to characterize a beam of polarized energy (Stokes vectors) and polarized energy matter interactions (Mueller matrices). The polarized bidirectional reflectance distribution function (pBRDF) is introduced as a way to characterize the reflective and emissive polarimetric behavior of materials. The goal is to provide the reader with an introduction to the topic, an appreciation of the issues, and the tools to begin to work in this field.
This text explains the mutual influences between the physical and dynamic processes in solids and their lasing properties. It provides insight into the physics and engineering of solid state lasers by integrating information from several disciplines, including solid state physics, materials science, photophysics, and dynamic processes in solids. The text discusses approaches to developing new laser materials and includes data tables of basic parameters that can be applied to laser design. Novel materials and techniques used in recent developments are also covered. One reviewer said, This is excellent. [Chapter 6] on photophysics is outstanding! Very well written and excellent equation derivation.
This edition is a German translation by Riedl of his Tutorial Text, Vol. TT48, entitled 'Optical Design Fundamentals for Infrared Systems (Second Edition)', published by SPIE PRESS 2001.
Und so wandert man mit großen Augen und offenem Mund wie ein Kind durch diese Fantasiewelt, vergisst die Zeit und legt am Ende traurig das Buch zur Seite, weil es schon zu Ende ist und man in die reale Welt zurückkehren, wieder erwachsen sein muss. (Leserstimme auf Amazon) Obwohl Jennifer Strange erst 16 Jahre alt ist, macht sie einen ziemlich guten Job und leitet noch immer die Zauberagentur Kazam in den Ununited Kingdoms. Ruhe will allerdings nicht einkehren. Shandar, der mächtigste (und gefährlichste) Zauberer aller Zeiten, kehrt zurück. Er konnte sein Drachenproblem nicht lösen und muss eigentlich seine Geldstrafe begleichen: 18 Goldbarren. Aber Shandar ist niemand, der für irgendetwas bezahlt, und so schwört er, die Drachen ein für alle Mal zu beseitigen. Außer, Jennifer Strange und ihre Freunde wären bereit, ihm das legendäre Juwel, das Auge des Zoltars, zu liefern. Jennifer hat keine Wahl, und so geht es mit ihren Gefährten auf die Reise. Blöd nur, dass der Weg zum Ziel mit einer 50%igen Todesquote ausgewiesen ist ...
