Dynamic Laser Speckle and Applicationsby Hector J. Rabal
Synopses & Reviews
Speckle study constitutes a multidisciplinary area with inherent complexities. In order to conquer challenges such as the variability of samples and sensitive measurements, researchers must develop a theoretical and statistical understanding of both biological and non-biological metrology using dynamic speckle laser.
Dynamic Laser Speckle and Applications discusses the main methodologies used to analyze biospeckle phenomena with a strong focus on experimentation. After establishing a theoretical background in both speckle and biospeckle, the book presents the main methodologies for statistical and image analysis. It then deals with the concept of frequency decomposition before moving on to a discussion of fuzzy methods to treat dynamic speckle data. The book dedicates two sections to applications, including agricultural approaches. Additional features include photo images of experiments and software to aid in easy start-up of dynamic speckle usage.
A systematic approach to new dynamic speckle laser phenomena, this book provides the physical theory and statistical background needed to analyze images formed by laser illumination in biological and non-biological samples.
Book News Annotation:
Rabal (optical engineering, U. Nacional de la Plata, Argentina) and Braga (engineering, U. Federal de Lavras, Brazil) have edited these articles on methodologies and statistical models used in dynamic laser speckle experiments, using biological and non-biological samples for scientists in a wide variety of agricultural disciplines. Contributors group their research into three distinct sections, covering the theoretical basis of speckle technology, the main methods of analysis and common applications used in the field. The final section of the book deals with the current software applications used to facilitate an "easy start-up" for this type of laser research.

Beginning with physical theory, statistical analysis, and applications, this book presents a systematic approach to new dynamic speckle laser phenomena. Theoretical topics include speckle, biospeckle, and simulation models for laser light interaction. Dynamic Laser Speckle and Applications discusses the main methodologies used to analyze biospeckle phenomena???such as image analysis, frequency decomposition, as well as neural and fuzzy methods???with a strong focus on experimentation. With examples of biological and non-biological materials, several chapters address current and future application areas. Photos of experiments further enhance understanding of the concepts in the text.
