This book gives a broad and authoritative overview of research currently underway in the fields of optical science and engineering throughout the world. The contributions, which are written by internationally renowned scientists, are of particular interest to specialists and nonspecialists in the many disciplines covered. They are less formal than the standard technical reviews found in academic journals and this is what makes the book accessible to readers who are not specialists in optical science and engineering.
