This international series has a long history of excellence in publishing monographs, reference works, and advanced textbooks on all aspects of theoretical and applied optics/optoelectronics. Among the areas of coverage are laser science, optical materials, quantum optics, nonlinear optics, interferometry, waves, and laser radiation. The target audience is students, scientists, and engineers in optics, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, and related fields.
New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the publisher (Carolina Antunes, Physics Editor: [email protected]) to discuss new title ideas.
