SPIE has collaborated with SPECTARIS, the German Hightech Industry Association, on an English version of its popular Photonics infographic book, Photonik: Technische Anwendungen des Lichts – Infografiken.
In 2015, SPECTARIS and industry sponsors in Germany published the original, German-language book to promote photonics to a broad audience during the International Year of Light.
There was a high level of interest in the book from the technical community, and the collaboration with SPIE Press will permit sharing an English-language book, Photonics: Technical applications of light – infographics, with an even larger audience.
The book covers basic concepts in photonics as well as image capture technologies and photonics applications in healthcare, environmental monitoring, and displays.
A PDF of the English version is available for free download from SPIE (19 MB) and at the SPIE booth at Photonics West in February.
