Govind Agrawal - "Nonimaging Optics" is very popular in the industry, and the book should do quite well if it is written from the point of view of an Engineer. Prof. ROLAND WINSTON is "the expert" in this field and should do a very good job. We just hired one of his colleagues from Germany here at the Institute of Optics, and he will be teaching a course on this topic. "The book is mostly theoretical, but applications to solar energy concentration are discussed at length. Mathematical foundations are explored in 13 appendices. References are numerous and up-to-date, and the index serves its purpose." - OPN Optics & Photonics News, Sept. 2006Vom Verlag:
From its inception nearly 30 years ago, the optical subdiscipline now referred to as nonimaging optics, has experienced dramatic growth. The term nonimaging optics is concerned with applications where imaging formation is not important but where effective and efficient collection , concentration, transport and distribution of light energy is - i.e. solar energy conversion, signal detection, illumination optics, measurement and testing. This book will incorporate the substantial developments of the past decade in this field. * Includes all substantial developments of the past decade in the rapidly moving field of nonimaging optics * The only authoritative reference on nonimaging optics, from the leader in the field
