© 2016,Principles of Adaptive Opticsdescribes the foundations, principles, and applications of adaptive optics (AO) and its enabling technologies. Addressing the fundamentals of AO at the core of new uses in biomedical imaging, communications, high-energy lasers, and astronomy, this fully revised and significantly expanded Fourth Edition: Contains all-new problem sets at the end of each chapter Incorporates cutting-edge research, with hundreds of new citations Adds a new section on the practical implications of control algorithms Includes a practical roadmap for developing a viable stable multichannel control system Presents new practical calibration techniques and new information on phase diversity for wavefront sensing Updates coverage of AO systems--e.g., confocal AO scanning ophthalmoscopes and National Ignition Facility (NIF) beam path AO Features fresh material on multiconjugate adaptive optics, extra-solar planet detection, optical coherence tomography, pyramid wavefront sensors, micromachined deformable mirrors, and more Principles of Adaptive Optics, Fourth Edition provides a complete update of the most definitive text for the field.
© 2016,This volume provides researchers with up-to-date protocols and takes aclose look at current research and promising applications. Optogenetics:Methods and Protocols contains a collection of recently developed technicalprotocols on optogenetic applications in neuroscience, brain mapping, treatmentof neurological disorders, and restoration of visual function. Severalintroductory and discussion chapters offer a wide overview about sources anddiversity of optogenetic tools, design strategies, and potential applicationsin other fields like plant research. Written in the highly successful Methodsin Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to theirrespective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step,readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting andavoiding known pitfalls. Cutting edge and thorough, Optogenetic: Methods and Protocols , deliversan interdisciplinary view of optogenetic applications and its potential todevelop as a valuable tool for basic research, as well as biomedical andbiotechnological applications.
