Book Description

Colour and the Optical Properties of Materials; 2nd edition (PDF) carefully introduces the science behind the subject; together with many modern and innovative applications; chosen to appeal to today’s students. For science students; it offers a broad introduction to the subject and the many applications of colour. To more applied university students; like engineering and art students; it gives the essential scientific background to colour and the many applications.

New to this 2nd Edition:

  • The end of chapter problems will be strengthened and expanded.
  • Some chapters will include extensive new material; e.g. Chapter 8; colors due to molecular processes [organic LEDs; etc]; and Chapter 12; Displays; [touch screen technologies].
  • For all chapters it would be intended to take into account the current scientific literature up to the time of submission – say up to the end of 2009. The end of chapter Further Reading sections would reflect this up-to-date overview.
  • The chapter framework of the first edition will be retained; with each chapter being substantially rewritten and some material would be relocated. Some chapters will be rewritten in a clearer fashion; e.g. There have been no major advances in the understanding of rainbows lately; but the text could be clarified and improved.
  • Colour has been an important attribute of many nano-particle containing systems; such as quantum dots. This aspect will be included; e.g. the colour of gold ruby glass; described in Chapter 5 as part of scattering phenomena now is better treated in terms of gold nanoparticles and surface plasmons. This would possibly be transferred to Chapter 10 and considered in tandem with the colour of metals such as copper; gold; and silver. A similar state of affairs applies to polychromic glass and silver nanoparticles.

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook; Colour and the Optical Properties of Materials 2e in PDF. No access codes are included.
