About this book


Optical and photonic systems and devices have significant potential for homeland security. Optical Imaging Sensors and Systems for Homeland Security Applications presents original and significant technical contributions from leaders of industry, government, and academia in the field of optical and photonic sensors, systems and devices for detection, identification, prevention, sensing, security, verification and anti-counterfeiting. The chapters have recent and technically significant results, ample illustrations, figures, and key references. This book is intended for engineers and scientists in the relevant fields, graduate students, industry managers, university professors, government managers, and policy makers.

Advanced Sciences and Technologies for Security Applications focuses on research monographs in the areas of

-Recognition and identification (including optical imaging, biometrics, authentication, verification, and smart surveillance systems)

-Biological and chemical threat detection (including biosensors, aerosols, materials detection and forensics), and

-Secure information systems (including encryption, and optical and photonic systems).

The series is intended to give an overview at the highest research level of the frontier of research in the physical sciences.
