9780122818554: Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids: Handbook of Thermo-Optic Coefficients of Optical Materials with Applications

This volume in the Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids is the first and only book to provide comprehensive coverage of refractive index and thermo-optic coefficients. It contains the refractive indexes and thermo-optic coefficients for nonlinear crystals, semiconductors, optical glasses, and fiber glasses. The Sellmeier coefficients of two physically meaningful Sellmeier equations are evaluated and are used to calculate these values throughout the normal transmission region of these optical materials. The author has also included analysis and explanations for some temperature-dependent optical devices/systems

  • Presents the optical constants for over 70 technologically interesting crystals and commercial glasses
  • Details various techniques for measuring the optical constants and mathematical models for analytical calculations of some data
  • Includes thermo-optic coefficients that are necessary to calculate the refractive index of the optical material at any operating temperature
  • Describes how all optical devices (both temperature dependent and independent) can be explained satisfactorily by using the two Sellmeier equations

About the Author:

Gorachand Ghosh is a NEDO Fellow at the New Energy and Industrial TechnologyDevelopment Organization. He is the author or co-author of about 80 publications in fields ranging from nonlinear optics, fiber optics, lasers, and condensed matter physics. Dr. Ghosh is a member of the Optical Society of America,the Australian Optical Society, life fellow of the Indian Physical Society, and founding life member of the Indian Laser Association. He received his Ph.D. in nonlinear optics from Burdwan University, India in 1982. Since then he as taught and conducted research in the above fields in India, Australia, andJapan. He was an STA Fellow at ETL from 1993-1995. His name has been nominated and listed in the Marquis Who's Who Publication, "Who's Who in the World."

Review:

"This book will serve as a useful reference. The editor and contributors deserve a measure of thanks for their effort to facilitate for us the finding values of the optical constants of 37 solids and for providing an in-one-placesummary of several techniques for determination of n and k." --R.M.A. Azzam and Jacqueline Casset in APPLIED OPTICS

"The beauty of this book is in the breadth of the spectral range covered....The value of this compilation of critically reviewed optical data far outweighs the books deficiencies and...this handbook must be regarded as a necessity in any physics or materials science reference library." --David M. Roessler, General Motors Research Laboratories, Warren, Michigan, in OPTICAL NEWS

"The editor prepared a table that summarizes the optical properties of the materials reviewed in Volumes. I and II. The amount of the detail that it contains is truly astounding....There is a fundamental reason why a book of this type is much more usefulthan an abbreviated compilation....The book is attractive to workers in many fields because of the vast range of the data." --Philip Baumeister, Coherent Auburn Group, Auburn, California, in OPTICS AND PHOTONICS NEWS

"This book is an essential addition to every scientific reference library and to the bookshelves of all who are interested in what is loosely referred to as 'the optical properties of solids." --B.L. EVANS, University of Reading, U.K.
