Trends in optical materials research.


Trends in optical materials research.

Ed. by Owen G. Gardens.

Nova Science Publishers


266 pages




Progress on optical materials and their applications seems to be approaching the speed of light itself. The array of materials now extends to crystals, films, fibers, glass, certain composites and exotic materials still under basic research. This collection of papers includes several on laboratory testing and measurement techniques for new materials and others covering such topics as the optical properties of certain derivatives investigated by a range of standard methods, studies on the morphology of organic molecules in thin solid films, up-conversion luminescence properties of rare-earth doped oxide nanocrystals, the photo-physics involved in the excitation of pyryllium slats, and reports on materials employing new combinations of chemicals, silica and new materials.
