B-PHOT contributes to book ‘Tunable Micro-optics’

February 12, 2016 at 09:36

In February 2016 the book ‘Tunable Micro-optics’, edited by Hans Zappe and Claudia Duppé from Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany was published. B-PHOT members Heidi Ottevaere, Lien Smeesters, and Hugo Thienpont contributed with a chapter on “Characterization of micro-optics” to this book.

The book provides a comprehensive survey of a wide range of topics in optics. The chapters cover cutting-edge materials, devices and subsystems, including soft matter, artificial muscles, tunable lenses and apertures, photonic crystals, and complete tunable imagers. Special contributions discuss micro-optical characterization, scanners and the use of natural eye models as inspiration for new concepts in advanced optics. The book combines wider research in micro-optics from the international community with findings collected from a six-year programme focused on tunable micro-optics funded by the German Research Foundation (soure: Nature Photonics, Vol. 10, Feb. 2016).

The book is available via Cambridge University Press and retails for £110 (approximately €144).
