Appropriate for graduate-level courses in optoelectronics, experimental physics, optics, photonics, or electrical engineering that cover laser-based instrumentation.
This is a systematic, up-to-date guide to laser instrumentation for the measurement of physical quantities in contemporary scientific, industrial, automotive and avionics applications. Growing out of Dr. Silvano Donatis semester-level graduate course on optoelectronic instrumentation, it presents clear design rules and useful hints for practical implementation of virtually any laser instrumentation system. Coverage includes: interferometers for sub-micrometer displacement measurements, nano-meter vibrometers for structural integrity testing, Doppler-velocimeters for anemometry of fluids, telemeter and anti-collision systems for avionics, non-contact wire-diameter and particle-diameter sizing, alignment and level meter apparatuses, gyroscopes for inertial platforms and more. For each type of instrument, Donati outlines basic principles, physical limitations, reasonable performance expectations, optical design, and electronic signal handling–complete with block schemes. The author is a recognized expert on the topics he discusses. He has chaired national and international conferences in these areas, including ODIMAP 1999 and 2001, and has edited special issues in international scientific journals such as Optical Engineering and Journal of Optics.
Helps students master the full range of optoelectronics instrumentation, so they can succeed in virtually any project regardless of the specific devices it involves.
Helps students understand every issue associated with optoelectronic instrumentation design, and gives them hands-on guidance for implementing their own systems.
Gives students realistic expectations for the level of performance they can achieve with each major form of optoelectronic instrumentation.
Gives students confidence that they are receiving information that is thorough, accurate, clear, and useful–and reflects the challenges they will actually face.
Students learn from material that has been proven clear and effective through extensive testing with graduate-level students.
Students benefit from tested presentation materials, and can test their knowledge against carefully designed and proven problems.
