Abstract:
Research and Markets has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Optical Properties of Nanoparticle Systems: Mie and Beyond" to their offering.

Research and Markets: Optical Properties of Nanoparticle Systems: Mie and Beyond

Dublin, Ireland | Posted on March 1st, 2011

Unlike other books who concentrate on metallic nanoparticles with sizes less than 100 nm, the author discusses optical properties of particles with (a) larger size and (b) of any material. The intention of this book is to fill the gap in the description of the optical properties of small particles with sizes less than 1000 nm and to provide a comprehensive overview on the spectral behavior of nanoparticulate matter. The author concentrates on the linear optical properties elastic light scattering and absorption of single nanoparticles and on reflectance and transmittance of nanoparticle matter. The optical properties of nanomaterials include elastic light scattering, absorption, reflectance and transmittance, second harmonic generation, nonlinear optical properties, surface enhanced Raman scattering, and more. The catalog of spectra of nanoparticulate matter is completely new.

Key Topics Covered:

1 Introduction.

2 Nanoparticle Systems and Experimental Optical Observables.

3 Interaction of Light with Matter The Optical Material Function.

4 Fundamentals of Light Scattering by an Obstacle.

5 Mies Theory for Single Spherical Particles.

6 Application of Mies Theory.

7 Extensions of Mies Theory.

8 Limitations of Mies Theory Size and Quantum Size Effects in Very Small Nanoparticles.

9 Beyond Mies Theory I Nonspherical Particles.

10 Beyond Mies Theory II The Generalized Mie Theory.

11 The Generalized Mie Theory Applied to Different Systems.

12 Densely Packed Systems.

13 Near-Field and SERS.

14 Effective Medium Theories.

Author:

Dr. Michael Quinten works as Chief Technical Coordinator at FRT GmbH in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. Having obtained his diploma degree and Ph. D. in physics (1989) at the University of Saarland, Saarbruecken, Germany, he joined the Technical University RWTH Aachen in 1990. He then spent four years at several universities in Graz, Austria, Chemnitz, Aachen, Saarbruecken and Bochum, Germany. During this academic period from 1983 to 2000, he authored 50 scientific publications with topics in optical properties of nanoparticles, nanoparticle materials and aerosols. In 2001 he joined the ETA-Optik GmbH, Germany, where he first worked in research and development of integrated optics components and later became product manager in the Colour and Coatings Division. In 2007 he moved to FRT GmbH where he is responsible for the optical sensor technology division.
