Light and Matter: Electromagnetism, Optics, Spectroscopy and Lasers provides comprehensive coverage of the interaction of light and matter and resulting outcomes. Covering theory, practical consequencies and applications, this modern text serves to bridge the gap between electromagnetism, optics, spectroscopy and lasers. The book introduces the reader to the nature of light, explanes key procedures which occur as light travels through matter and delves into the effects and applications, exploring spectroscopy, lasers, nonlinear optics, fiber optics, quantum optics and light scattering. Extensive examples ensure clarity of meaning while the dynamic structure allows sections to be studies independently of one another. * covers both fundamentals and applications * features numerous examples * dynamic structure allows sections to be studied independently of one another * in depth coverage of modern topics. This is an essential text for students of electromagnetism and optics, optoelectronics and lasers, quantum electronics spectroscopy, as well as being an invaluable reference for researches.M intervals in word bits of information = log2 M Figure 10.12 M-ary pulse position modulation scheme for digital ... A disadvantage of PPM modulation is in its complex receiver that must be synchronized to the word and the time slots in order to properly reconstruct information. Yet another modulation technique is multilevel modulation, sometimes called pulse- code modulation, wherein the optical poweranbsp;...
