Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book presents an up-to-date survey of theoretical and experimental studies of rough surface scattering of electromagnetic waves. . It should be of interest to scientists and graduate students, especially those investigating areas in nanotechnology such as the effect of light scattering of quasi-particle nonlinear optics involving surface plasmons. This book can be used as a reference for a course on nanotechnology . ." (Hsiung Hsu, Optics and Photonics News, May, 2007)
