Book Description :

Optics of the Moon offers a modern approach to lunar remote sensing. It presents methods for interpreting optics of surfaces on the Moon with complicated structures. For example, the book illustrates how phase-ratio techniques can lead to detection of surface structure anamolies, describes polarimetric studies of the lunar surface and their use, and addresses many other questions related to the regolith-like surfaces of the Moon, such as why the Moon looks like a ball at a large phase angle and like a disk in full moon, why the lunar surface has slight color variations, and why at large phase angles its polarization degree closely correlates with albedo. Includes case studies, maps, and color figures to illustrate concepts clearly with specific application to the moon Presents theories alongside experimental and observational data to support and describe modern techniques Communicates new approaches and methods related to the optics of surfaces on the Moon with complicated structures

Book Description :

This unique volume attempts to answer one of mankind's oldest puzzles -- why the moon appears to be larger and closer on the horizon than when it is high in the sky. Over the centuries, many viable solutions have been proposed for this psychological phenomenon. The Moon Illusion presents papers by major theorists striving to explain the illusion and providing commentaries on the works of others. Research on the moon illusion has been scattered throughout journals in many disciplines including philosophy, physiology, physics, and psychology. As the first publication to present a comprehensive treatment of the problem, this book is of vital interest to professionals whose major concern is visual perception, experimental psychology, or the neurosciences. Of additional interest to those whose focus is physics or astronomy.

Book Description :

Instrumentation for the AFCRL lunar laser experiment was developed specifically for lunar laser ranging. Jointly supported by NASA and AFCRL, the experiment fulfilled the scientific objective of ranging to lunar retroreflectors using telescope optics of only moderate aperture. Returned laser signals were detected from Apollo 11 and Apollo 15 retroreflectors. Because of the historical significance and the continued scientific interest in lunar laser ranging, this report documents AFCRL participation in the lunar laser optical ranging experiment. Emphasis is placed on the development of instrumentation. The formation operation, and termination of the AFCRL Lunar Laser Observatory are included. A system suitable for the continuation of this experiment was developed and tested. (Author).

Book Description :

Bringing together some of the most recognized and influential researchers and scientists in various space-related disciplines, Lunar Settlements addresses the many issues that surround the permanent human return to the Moon. Numerous international contributors offer their insights into how certain technological, physiological, and psychological challenges must be met to make permanent lunar settlements possible. The book first looks to the past, covering the Apollo and Saturn legacies. In addition, former astronaut and U.S. Senator Harrison H. Schmitt discusses how to maintain deep space exploration and settlement. The book then discusses economic aspects, such as funding for lunar commerce, managing human resources, and commercial transportation logistics. After examining how cultural elements will fit into habitat design, the text explores the physiological, psychological, and ethical impact of living on a lunar settlement. It also describes the planning/technical requirements of lunar habitation, the design of both manned and modular lunar bases, and the protection of lunar habitats against meteoroids. Focusing on lunar soil mechanics, the book concludes with discussions on lunar concrete, terraforming, and using greenhouses for agricultural purposes. Drawing from the lunar experiences of the six Apollo landing missions to the many American and Soviet robotic missions to current space activities and research, this volume summarizes the problems, prospects, and practicality of enduring lunar settlements. It reflects the key disciplines, including engineering, physics, architecture, psychology, biology, and anthropology, that will play significant roles in establishing these settlements.

Book Description :

Because of their optical characteristics, head-up displays (HUDs) have always interacted with various kinds of sunlight to produce unwanted reflections. Capture means that a HUD can and will capture or trap light and direct it into a pilot's eyes. This capture effect can result in both reflections and retroflections. Reflections occur when an external light source impinges on a reflective surface. Retroflections are light reflections that result from external light entering the hUD optics train, reflecting off the face of the cathode ray tube (CRT), and passing back out through the optics. Both the reflected and the retroflected image are called reflexes. With the introduction of diffractive optics technology, there is a need to describe how diffraction and conventional optics perform in the presence of collimated light sources, such as that provided by the sun and moon.

A History of Optics from Greek Antiquity to the Nineteenth Century

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

This book is a long-term history of optics, from early Greek theories of vision to the nineteenth-century victory of the wave theory of light. It shows how light gradually became the central entity of a domain of physics that no longer referred to the functioning of the eye; it retraces the subsequent competition between medium-based and corpuscular concepts of light; and it details the nineteenth-century flourishing of mechanical ether theories. The author critically exploits and sometimes completes the more specialized histories that have flourished in the past few years. The resulting synthesis brings out the actors' long-term memory, their dependence on broad cultural shifts, and the evolution of disciplinary divisions and connections. Conceptual precision, textual concision, and abundant illustration make the book accessible to a broad variety of readers interested in the origins of modern optics.

GET BOOK

Book Description :

Though the basic science of optics remains the same, technology has advanced considerably since the publication of the ninth edition in 1981. This has led to an extensive revision of the text to take into accound such recent technological developments as the greater use of lasers and fibreoptics and the development of diffractive optical elements. Despite related developments in personal computers, Professor Freeman maintains that the optimum learning conditions still comprise a textbook, calculator and notepad. Optics therefore continues to make minimal mathematical demands on the reader and avoids specific techniques such as matrix algebra and complex exponent trigonometry. Optics is the basic text in optical science related to visible light, and meets the specific needs of all those seeking the optical knowledge required in optometry, ophthalmology and the visual sciences. It will also be valuable to scientists and engineers who have become newly involved in optical systems.

Book Description :

The Optics was a product of Kepler's most creative period. It began as an attempt to give astronomical optics a solid foundation, but soon transcended this narrow goal to become a complete reconstruction of the theory of light, the physiology of vision, and the mathematics of refraction. The result is a work of extraordinary breadth whose significance transcends most categories into which it might be placed. It gives us precious insight into Kepler's thought during this crucial period, an insight all the more valuable in that most of his working papers from that time have been lost. Second, it is the culmination of a long and rich tradition in the science of optics, in distinct contrast with the new optical thought represented by Descartes. And third, it presents discoveries in the physiology of vision, photometry, and the geometry of conic sections which have become part of our intellectual heritage. Especially notable are Kepler's discovery of the inverted retinal image, his theoretical grounding of the inverse-square photometric law, and his insights into the relations between the various conic sections.
