Infrared Physics & Technology
Infrared Phys Tech
Published/Hosted by Elsevier Science.
The Journal covers the entire field of infrared physics and technology: theory, experiment, devices and instrumentation.Its core topics can be summarized as the generation, propagation and detection, of infrared radiation; the associated optics, materials and devices; and its use in all fields of science, industry and medicine.Infrared techniques occur in many different fields, notably spectroscopy and interferometry; material characterization and processing; atmospheric physics, astronomy and space research. Scientific aspects include quantum optics, quantum electronics and semiconductor physics. Some important applications are medical diagnostics and treatment, industrial inspection and environmental monitoring. A fuller though not exhaustive list of topics would include: Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Research Atmospheric transmission, turbulence and scattering. Environmental applications: pollution and monitoring. Detectors: quantum and thermal Industrial applications Infrared lasers including free electron lasers Material properties, processing and characterization. Medical applications Nondestructive testing, active and passive. Optical elements: lenses, polarizers, filters, mirrors, fibres, etc. Radiometry: techniques, calibration, standards and instrumentation. Remote sensing and range-finding Solid-state physics Thermal imaging: device design, testing and applications Synchroton radiation in the infrared
