"... fills a significant gap in the literature, providing updated information about the latest radiation measurement instrumentation and guidelines for its use. Another advantage of the new book is that it is structured as a textbook, including questions for the student at the end of each chapter, which increases its appeal beyond a reference for specialists." —Laura Hinkelman, PhD, University of Washington

"… the first comprehensive treatment of measurement and instrumentation of solar and infrared radiation. … a well-organized approach to covering the topics including important concepts, physics principles, classical operational radiometry, state of the art technologies for solar and meteorological measurements, solar monitoring station, etc. … not only a suitable textbook for academic researchers and solar engineering students, but also an indispensable resource for solar systems engineers ..." —Prof. Xin Wang, PhD, Oregon Institute of Technology, Klamath Falls, USA

"… provides the type of details needed for engineering a solar radiation monitoring system, including a history of devices used, detailed descriptions of the state-of-the-art devices, methods of calibration and uncertainty estimation, setup of a solar monitoring station, and manufacturers who can provide the equipment." —Frank Rytkonen, P.E., Oregon Institute of Technology, Portland, USA

This reference explores the various types of solar radiation measurements and how they operate. The book gives the reader a step-by-step approach to the set-up, operation, and maintenance of a solar monitoring station. The book provides the background and terminology needed to understand the uses and requirements of various solar monitoring radiometers, and it gives an overview of the various solar radiation instruments.

Industrial Applications of Laser Diagnostics Yoshihiro Deguchi University of Tokushima, Japan

With numerous real-world industrial examples, this cohesive work reviews current laser-based techniques as applied to industrial monitoring and diagnostics. It covers regulations, safety and environmental issues, and a range of modern applications in industrial physics and engineering. The book focuses on laserinduced fluorescence, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy, time-of-flight mass spectroscopy, and optical fiber sensing technology. It also explores industrial products that address environmental and safety requirements. • Contains many real-life examples from a wide range of industries, including a commercial incinerator and a power plant • Discusses a variety of techniques, along with their implementation and cost analysis • Explores modern optical fiber technologies
