Interferometry of Fibrous Materials

By Barakat Copyright 1990

    Interferometry of Fibrous Materials shows how interferometric methods can be used in optical, synthetic, and natural fiber analysis. This practical volume features a large number of both color and black and white interferograms to enhance understanding of how interferometry is used to determine a fibre's optical properties.
