Description - Principles and Applications of Polarization Division Interferometry by Prasad L. Polavarapu
Principles and Applications of Polarization--Division Interferometry Prasad L. Polavarapu Department of Chemistry, Vanderbilt University, USA Polarization--division interferometers have greatly increased the applications of infrared spectroscopy in recent years. This first dedicated book on the topic includes a chapter on the principles of polarization--division interferometric spectrometry followed by four chapters highlighting the range of applications of this important technique. Applications as diverse as the verification of the Big Bang theory and material characterization are discussed by leading researchers in their respective fields, so the book as a whole serves as a state of the art reference on the subject. The editor, Professor Prasad Polavarapu, has carried out important research in this area including the development of a Martin--Puplett interferometer. He has gathered together an international group of contributors of world--wide renown.
