QUICKLY AND EASILY ESTIMATE THE IMPACT OF CHANGE WITH 300 PROVEN PHOTONICSCALCULATIONS! UPDATED WITH 100 COMPLETELY NEW AND IMPROVED RULES AND ORGANIZED INTO 18 CHAPTERS THAT INCLUDE LASERS, DETECTORS, OPTICS OF THE ATMOSPHERE, AND MANY MORE! Here is a handy compilation of 300 cost-saving,think-on-your-feet photonics rules of thumb designed to save you hours of design time and a world of frustration. Within seconds you can accurately gauge the impact of a suggested design change on your project. It is the premiere collection of these valuable rules in a single, quick look-up reference. These simple-to-implement calculations allow you to rapidly pinpoint trouble spots, ask the right questions at meetings, and are perfect for quick sanity checks of last-minute specifications or performance feature additions. Offering a convenient alphabetical arrangement according to specialty, this unique reference spans the entirespectrum of photonics, including: * Eighteen chapters covering optics, electro-optics, optics of the atmosphere, radiometry, technologies relatedto security and surveillance systems, lasers, and many others. * If you want to develop a sense of what will work and what won't and want the calculations to keep things real, Photonics Rules of Thumbbelongs on your desk or in your pocket.
Ed Friedman earned a B.S. in physics at the University of Mary in 1966 and a Ph.D. in cryogenic physics from Wayne State University in 1972. He started his career in the field of ocean optics and subsequently developed system concepts for remote sensing of the atmosphere and oceans. After completing studies related to the design of s...
