Optical Spectroscopy of Inorganic Solids

Brian Henderson and George Francis Imbusch

Monographs on the Physics and Chemistry of Materials

  • The underlying theory is fully developed with a plentiful coverage of worked examples directly related to the experimental examples given in the text.
  • The necessary and broad theoretical framework is covered without overlap with the specialised standard texts.
  • The experimental techniques explained in detail in the text are readily adapted to new observational situations.
  • Theory and experiments described in the text are just as relevant to applications in technology as described in the chapter on Solid-State Lasers.
  • Sophisticated optical double resonance techniques and the interpretation of their results are included as a natural tool and so discussed within the same natural framework.
