The second part of the book gives a broad review on optical techniques and their applications such as infrared and optical spectroscopy or optical microscopy. Discussions of nonlinear optics, but also nano–optics and local spectroscopies complement this self–contained work. Helpful features includes problems with solutions, a glossary, an index and a thoroughly elaborated list of topical references.
The book is suited as a text of graduate students but also for scientists working in physics, chemistry, materials or life sciences who look for an expert introduction to surface optical aspects of their studies.
