Product Description

From the Back Cover

Light and Matter: Electromagnetism, Optics, Spectroscopy and Lasers provides comprehensive coverage of the interaction of light and matter and resulting outcomes. Covering theory, practical consequencies and applications, this modern text serves to bridge the gap between electromagnetism, optics, spectroscopy and lasers. The book introduces the reader to the nature of light, explanes key procedures which occur as light travels through matter and delves into the effects and applications, exploring spectroscopy, lasers, nonlinear optics, fiber optics, quantum optics and light scattering. Extensive examples ensure clarity of meaning while the dynamic structure allows sections to be studies independently of one another. covers both fundamentals and applications features numerous examples dynamic structure allows sections to be studied independently of one another in depth coverage of modern topics.  This is an essential text for students of electromagnetism and optics, optoelectronics and lasers, quantum electronics spectroscopy, as well as being an invaluable reference for researches.

Format: Paperback
The book is good but I feel you need to do the problems in terms of scale diagrams with protractors and rulers. Unfortunately there are no solution pages. The problems teach you the text, so you do not learn anything from the text, just the problems which saves reading loads of drawn out details. Beware of the use of ergs and gauss. Have a data book handy, you will need it for conversion to metric units. She is fond of the Angstrom unit on the Zeeman splitting question. I think the solutions page is vital and for this price is essential. Fermi would be proud of us using scale diagrams as this is what he expected of his students at Chicago University, when he set homework.
