New Techniques in Optics

Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics book series (ULNP)


For the last years several new optical techniques have been developed and applied. Some of them are based on old ideas but could not be realized because the technical requirements were missing, while also some completely new concepts have led to astonishing results.
