Light and Energy

Selected Literature References

Gathered from our vast library of literature on optical microscopy, the listed reference materials are an excellent source of additional information on the topic of light and energy and their interrelationships. Included in this section are references to books, select book chapters, and review articles that discuss various aspects of the theory and applications regarding how light is converted into energy and vice versa.
