New Book: How Optical Engineering Is Changing the Face of Biotech Boca Raton, Florida, USA, April 13, 2011 – CRC Press announces the publication of Applied Optics Fundamentals and Device Applications: Nano, MOEMS, and Biotechnology (April 2011; $129.95; ISBN: 978-1-4398-2906-6) written by optical engineering pioneer Mark Mentzer. CRC Press is the principal science and technology book division of the Taylor & Francis Group, an Informa Company. Written by a luminary in the field, this first-of-its-kind book provides an unprecedented interdisciplinary perspective on optics technology, making it a useful new tool for students, engineers, scientists, and even venture capitalists involved in various arms of engineering—including electrical, chemical, biological, mechanical, aerospace, materials, and optics. Through advances in optical engineering and solid state physics, we can now use the properties of light to our advantage in ways never before imagined, to make microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), optical MEMS (MOEMS), and general nano- and biotechnologies a reality. This book describes everything from core principles and fundamental relationships, to emerging technologies and practical application of devices and systems associated with these areas—including fiber-optic sensors, integrated and electrooptics, and specialized military applications. Mentzer offers uncommon insight into this convergence of disciplines—particularly in biotechnological pursuits such as biochemistry, molecular biology, and biophotonics—to illustrate their relevance to optical engineering, and exactly how they are being put to use in the emerging domain of nanobiotechnology. About the Author Mark A. Mentzer is a pioneer in the field of optical engineering. He is a senior research scientist at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory in Maryland. Much of his current work involves extending the fields of optical engineering and solid state physics into the realms of biochemistry and molecular biology, as well as structured research in biophotonics.
