Optical Angular Momentum
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungIn many respects, orbital and spin angular momentum behave similarly, but the orbital variety offers exciting possibilities with respect to the optical manipulation of matter and in the study of the photon entanglement. Bringing together 44 landmark papers, Optical Angular Momentum offers the first comprehensive overview of the subject as it has developed. It chronicles the first decade of this important subject and gives a definitive statement of the current status of all aspects of optical angular momentum. In each chapter the editors include a concise introduction that puts the selected papers into context and outlines the key articles.
