From Leonardo to Oppenheimer, from candles to lasers, from cave drawings to cinema, from stonehenge to quantum mechanics, from Genesis to the large Bang, mild has crammed our recommendations, our method of lifestyles, our aesthetics, our know-how, and our capability for survival. Richard Weiss leads us alongside those paths over the last 500 gentle years. the way in which is lit by way of pioneers reminiscent of Rembrandt, Einstein, D W Griffith, Newton, and Heisenberg. a quick historical past of sunshine, AND those who LIT the way in which is a summer's day roller-coaster journey via 5 centuries of man's achievements in figuring out and manipulating gentle. --This textual content refers back to the paperback version of this title

The subsequent blurb for use for the AP document and ATI purely as either volumes won't seem jointly there. ****Strained-layer superlattices were constructed as a tremendous new kind of semiconducting fabric with functions in built-in electro-optics and electronics. Edited via a pioneer within the box, Thomas Pearsall, this quantity deals a complete dialogue of strained-layer superlattices and makes a speciality of fabrication know-how and functions of the fabric.

Introducing graduate scholars in physics, optics, fabrics technology and electric engineering to floor plasmons, this ebook additionally covers guided modes at planar interfaces of metamaterials with damaging refractive index. The physics of localized and propagating floor plasmons, on planar movies, gratings, nanowires and nanoparticles, is built utilizing either analytical and numerical options.

In all cases, the structures can again be understood in terms of the isolated vacancy one-electron molecular orbital models as simply perturbed by the presence of the other defect. Again, many electron effects are found to be unimportant. d.
