`I regard this book as a gem that not only should be used as a text but should also be a reference in labs, both academic and industrial, around the world where optical techniques are used.' Robert Glosser, Professor of Physics at University of Texas, Dallas
`A thoroughly excellent textbook and I look forward to being able to recommend it to my students... conventional topics are presented in an unconventional way ... the author has thought long and hard as to how best teach a variety of topics. This will make it a unique and valuable addition to the books currently in use at universities.' Ifan Hughes, Department of Physics at University of Durham
