 The Human Eye book's cover

The Human Eye: an Intelligent Optical Sensor (The Inverted Retina: a Diffractive-optical Correlator) - open access book shows that the human eye from the prenatal structuring of the inverted retina hardware on up to the design of the central cortical visual pathway is not only different from but also radically more intelligent than a camera. Many paradoxa in color vision (RGB peak positioning in the visible spectrum, overlapping of the RGB channels, relating local color to the whole scene, paradoxically colored shadows, Purkinje phenomenon etc.) are becoming intelligent solutions. With its hexagonal and polar microstructure, the retinal net, linked to the body’s coordinate system by hemisphere and quadrant dissection of the visible in the central visual pathway, also contributes to object classification and identification: WHAT something visible is more generally (a ‘bird’ or a ‘car’) or more specifically (a ‘robin’ or a ‘Ferrari’). The inverted retina with its three-layer processing represents the ‘missing link’ between imaging optics and the cortical multilayer information processing. Practical applications are the search for a retinal implant of the next generation and a helpful strategy against myopia in early childhood.  A fascinating book for all those wondering that the brightness of a scene is not cut in half and that the visible world doesn’t collapse into a flat 2D-image when closing one eye. Of great interest for students, scientists and engineers in eye-, vision- and brain-research, neuroscience, psychophysics, ophthalmology, psychology, optical sensor and diffractive optical engineering.

Sensors and Measurement Techniques for Chemical Gas Lasers - Sensing and Measurement is the key technology area in the development of these lasers. Advanced sensing and measurement technologies are required to acquire, analyze and transform data into information that is useful to enhance the performance and capabilities of these lasers systems. Beginning with a brief introduction to the basic concepts of sensors and transducers, classification of various sensors, the monograph discusses characteristics of various sensors, sensor signals, signal conditioning and their operations in chemical lasers scenarios. The emphasis is laid more on applicable diagnostic techniques, data processing and hardware selection. Further, design methodology and implementation of customized data acquisition system required for gathering and analyzing information in real time regarding various critical parameters vital for optimal system performance has also been detailed. The goal of this monograph is therefore to enable scientists and technologists working in rather complex area of chemical lasers to achieve the best technical performances. Till now such topics have been covered scantly in open literature and that too in the research papers only.

Ionic Polymer Metallic Composite Transducers for Biomedical Robotics Applications

Ionic Polymer Metallic Composite Transducers for Biomedical Robotics Applications. This book is written for leading edge engineers and researchers, working with non-traditional or smart material based actuators, to help them develop such real world biomedical applications. Electrical, mechanical, mechatronics and control systems engineers will all benefit from the different techniques described in this book. The book may also serve as a reference for advanced research focused undergraduate and postgraduate students. Specifically, this book describes a cluster of research which aims to not only advance the state of art through scientific progress in a specific smart material actuator, namely IPMC, but also serve as a guideline to demonstrate the techniques in which many more issues around developing future smart material actuators can be solved. Traditionally actuators are well known and understood and so designing mechanical devices is almost trivial, however developing ‘smart’ devices for complex medical applications requires designing from a fundamental standpoint. This research-design-development process is described in this book.
