Handbook of Optical Metrology 2nd Edition Available

Handbook of Optical Metrology: Principles and Applications begins by discussing key principles and techniques before exploring practical applications of optical metrology. Designed to provide beginners with an introduction to optical metrology without sacrificing academic rigor, this comprehensive overview includes:

  • Fundamentals of light sources, lenses, prisms, and mirrors, as well as opto-electronic sensors, optical devices, and opto-mechanical elements
  • Addresses interferometry, holography, and speckle methods and applications
  • Explains Moiré metrology and the optical heterodyne measurement method
  • Delves into the specifics of diffraction, scattering, polarization, and near-field optics
  • Considers applications for measuring length and size, displacement, straightness and parallelism, flatness, and three-dimensional shapes

The Second Edition Handbook of Optical Metrology is fully revised to reflect the latest developments. It also includes four new chapters, comprising almost 100 pages, on optical coherence tomography for industrial applications, interference microscopy for surface structure analysis, non-contact dimensional and profile metrology by video measurement, and optical metrology in manufacturing technology.

The Handbook of Optical Metrology comprises is available on Amazon.
