Book Description

Detection of Optical Signals provides a comprehensive overview of important technologies for photon detection, from the X-ray through ultraviolet, visible, infrared to far-infrared spectral regions. It uniquely combines perspectives from many disciplines, particularly within physics and electronics, which are necessary to have a complete understanding of optical receivers.

This interdisciplinary textbook aims to:

• Guide readers into more detailed and technical treatments of readout optical signals

• Give a broad overview of optical signal detection including terahertz region and two-dimensional material

• Help readers further their studies by offering chapter-end problems and recommended reading.

This will be an invaluable resource for graduate students in physics and engineering, as well as a helpful refresher for those already working with aerospace sensors and systems, remote sensing, thermal imaging, military imaging, optical telecommunications, infrared spectroscopy, and light detection.

Antoni Rogalski is a professor at the Institute of Applied Physics, Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland. He is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of infrared (IR) optoelectronics. He has made pioneering contributions in the area of theory, design and technology of different types of IR detectors. In 1997, he received an award from the Foundation for Polish Science, the most prestigious scientific award in Poland, for achievements in the study of ternary alloy systems for infrared detectors. His monumental monograph Infrared and Terahertz Detectors (three editions published by Taylor and Francis), was translated on Russian and Chinese languages. In 2013 he was elected as an Ordinary Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences and a member of the Central Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles. From beginning of 2015 he is performing the deanship of the Faculty of Technical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and from 2016 – a member of group for affairs awards of Prime Minister.
