Featuring more than 700 references, equations, tables, and drawings, this highly lauded and best-selling reference emphasizes practical designs of over 30 lens systems, including single-element, two-element achromats, air-spaced triplets, projection lenses, and sophisticated wide-angle and zoom lenses. It comes with software that supplies starting solutions for computer optimization programs lens prescriptions and several shorter programs to compute the refractive index of glasses from a variety of manufacturers, create lens drawings, perform zoom computations, do test glass fitting, and calculate third-order solutions for single lenses, achromats, and triplets.

While photoacoustic imaging is probably the fastest growing biomedical imaging technology, this is the first comprehensive volume in this emerging field to cover both the physics and the noninvasive applications that are changing diagnostic medicine. Photoacoustic Imaging and Spectroscopy examines this exciting area of research, offering complete coverage of photoacoustic, optoacoustic, and thermoacoustic imaging. Featuring 200 illustrations, this volume illustrates the superiority of photoacoustic images over x-ray and ultrasonic images. It also discusses all potential applications of photoacoustic technology, including biomedical applications.

The Image Processing Handbook

High Resolution Optical Satellite Imagery

Sixth Edition John C. Russ North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA

"…a welcome addition to any reference shelf. Experienced researchers as well as novices will turn to it often to learn about imaging, while for students it provides a gentle yet thorough introduction, appropriate at either the undergraduate or graduate level, to a set of techniques that are used in as many wide-ranging disciplines as microscopy itself. Highly recommended, the book is extremely readable and captures the style of an experienced, knowledgeable teacher." —Lou Ross, Electron Microscopy Core, University of Missouri, Columbia, Microscopy and Microanalysis

Ian Dowman, Karsten Jacobsen, Gottfried Konecny, and Rainer Sandau This is a comprehensive guide to the characteristics and use of high resolution optical images from satellite-borne sensors, concentrating on sensors designed for mapping. It considers in detail the SPOT series of satellites and sensors with a ground sample distance (GSD) of less than 15m. The book explains how high-resolution imagery is obtained and the issues surrounding its collection and use. It covers the fundamentals of mapping from imagery, followed by the key features in the design of sensors and methods of data storage and transmission, including data compression. Catalog no. N10514, July 2012, 256 pp. ISBN: 978-1-4398-9444-6, $119.95
