This book begins by addressing properties of light as seen in the everyday world: events such as refraction in a pool, lenses in the form of glasses, the colors of objects, atmospheric events, etc. Latter chapters would explain these events at the atomic and subatomic level and address the use of electron and optical microscopy in observing the worlds unseen by the unaided eye. The book is an elegant, and aesthetically pleasing volume that is intended for science students, and will be enjoyed by those with a background in optics.

Produktbeschreibung
This book begins by addressing properties of light as seen in the everyday world: events such as refraction in a pool, lenses in the form of glasses, the colors of objects, atmospheric events, etc. Latter chapters would explain these events at the atomic and subatomic level and address the use of electron and optical microscopy in observing the worlds unseen by the unaided eye. The book is an elegant, and aesthetically pleasing volume that is intended for science students, and will be enjoyed by those with a background in optics. Exercises and activities will be found in an appendix, but the primary volume can stand alone if the reader so desires. There are several well-written and extensive volumes in the "physics of light and color" market; however, Patterns of Light will fill a niche by providing an overview of the entire electromagnetic spectrum, rather than simply focusing on visible light. TOC:Introduction.- The Path of Light: Light beams, Light paths, Pinholes.- Reflection of Light: Mirrors, Daguerreotypes, Equal angles, Windows.- Refraction of Light: Speed of light, Waves, Refractive Index, Total internal reflection, Mirages.- Lenses: Focal length, Magnification, Photography, Fresnel lenses.- Color: Color and Light, The Eye and Color Sensation, Sources of Light, Composition of Light.- Rainbows: Your own rainbow, Secondary rainbows, Light inside, Double rainbows.- Blue skies and White clouds: Scattering, Rock candy/glass, Salt/sugar/foam, Water/ice.- Interference & Color: Soap bubbles, Oil/gas on water, Feathers.- Polarized light: Sunglasses, Blue sky.- The photon: a. Photoelectric effect, Solar panels, CCDs, LEDs.- Optical Spectroscopy: a. Light and electrons, Optical light emission, Prisms/gratings, Neon lights.- Electrons in atoms: Photons and electrons, X-rays, Optical absorption.- IR-UV-X-rays: Paintings in IR/UV/X-ray, Scorpions in UV, Suntans, Teeth in X-ray.- Optical and electron microscopy: Depth of focus, Images of Nature, Simple microscopes, Compound microscopes, SEM.- Mars.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"In this work, which developed out of a general studies course at the university, Beeson and Mayer (both, Arizona State Univ.) present a descriptive overview of the nature of light and fundamental phenomena associated with its behavior. ... The brief, nontechnical chapters are geared to the nonscientist and emphasize phenomena. The book includes excellent illustrations (with some color photos) and a glossary of terms. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers." (O. Eknoyan, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), 2008)
