The Electronic Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids takes the highly praised five-volume set, Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids, to a new level of "information mining" with seamless integration of dynamic data tables, 2D and 3D displays, property calculations, and technical information. The program is designed for amterial scientists, spectroscopists, and optical device designers working with dielectric materials, including metals, semi-conductors, and insulators.
The CD-ROM features: Database Pathways, Data Representation Tools, Extensive Graphics, Calculation Pathways, Information Pathways, and Export Results.

Edward D. Palik received his B.S. in Physics 1950, his M.S. in 1952, and his Ph.D. in 1955 from Ohio State University. He specialized in far-infrared spectroscopy and was assistant professor at Ohio State University during 1955-1956. He was a NSF fellow at the University of Michigan in 1956 and 1957 and a General Motors Fellow at Ohio State University from 1957-1958. He became an NRC Fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory in 1958 and soon converted to a research physicist in 1959. During the rest of his career at NRL he worked in magnetooptics of semiconductors, for which he was awarded the Hulburt Award in 1964. This is the highest internal scientific award given at the Naval Research Laboratory. He also worked on the optical properties of semiconductors, total-internal-reflection spectroscopy studies of surface polaritons, cathodoluminescence studies of solids, and orientation-dependent etching of silicon in aqueous potassium-hydroxide solutions.He was editor for the first years of the newsletter of the Far Infrared and Submillimeter Wave Technical Group of the OSA. After his retirement in 1988, he joined the Institute for Physical Science and Technology at the University of Maryland as a part-time research associate. While there he carried out Brillouin-scattering studies of solids and studies of defects in Fabry Perot plates.Review:
"The amount of detail that it contains is truly astonishing...There is a fundamental reason why the HOC [Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids] is much more useful than an abbreviated compilation." -- Philip Baumeister, Coherent Auburn Group
"The beauty of HOC is in the breadth of the spectral range covered." -- David M. Roessler, General Motors Research Laboratories
"This set of five volumes...is a unique resource for any science and technology library. It provides materials for researchers and optical device designers with reference facts in a context not available anywhere else...The community of materials researchers, spectroscopists, and optical device designers has reason to welcome the five-volume reference tool...These five books will be an invaluable addition to any researcher's library." -- Ivan P. Kaminow, 1996 IEEE Congressional Fellow On The Staff Of The House of Science Committee, Member Of The National Academy Of Engineering
