For a host of reasons, nonlinear optical spectroscopy is a valuable tool for biochemical applications where minimally invasive diagnostics is desired. Biochemical Applications of Nonlinear Optical Spectroscopy presents the latest technological advances and offers a perspective on future directions in this important field.
Written by an international panel of experts, this volume begins with a comparison of nonlinear optical spectroscopy and x-ray crystallography. The text examines the use of multiphoton fluorescence to study chemical phenomena in the skin, the use of nonlinear optics to enhance traditional optical spectroscopy, and the multimodal approach, which incorporates several spectroscopic techniques in one instrument. Later chapters explore Raman microscopy, third-harmonic generation microscopy, and non-linear Raman microspectroscopy. The text explores the promise of beam shaping and the use of broadband laser pulse generated through continuum generation and an optical pulse shaper.
Lastly, the book discusses the effects of spatial beam shaping on the generated nonlinear Raman signals in a tightly focused geometry and provides insight into the extension of nonlinear optical spectroscopy to the nanoscale through the use of plasmonic tip-enhanced arrangement. With novel experimental approaches to this technology expanding day-by-day, the book’s balanced coverage from a wide range of international contributors not only elucidates important achievements, but also outlines future directions in this dynamic and promising field.

Summary: "Overturning conventional wisdom that digital effects have taken over Hollywoodand destroyed good storytelling, McClean shows that the classical art of storytelling is very muchalive in contemporary film and that it shapes and motivates the use of digital effects, not viceversa. Drawing on her professional experience as a script editor and visual effects consultant, heranalysis of the interplay between narrative and visual effects is sophisticated and clearlypresented, and includes case studies of films such as Alien, The Lord of the Rings, and Hero. Smart,compelling, and incisive, Digital Storytelling is an essential text that will change the debate overthe place of digital effects in contemporary film."--Stephen Prince, Professor ofCommunication, Virginia Tech.

Descrizione libro Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Not Signed; Computer-generated effects are often blamed for bad Hollywood movies. Yet when a critic complains that technology swamps storytelling (in a review of Van Helsing, calling it an example of everything that is wrong with Hollywood computer-generated effects movies ), it says more about the weakness of the story than the strength of the technology. In Digital Storytelling, Shilo McClean shows how digital visual effects can be a tool of storytelling in film, adding narrative power as do sound, color, and experimental camera angles -- other innovative film technologies that were once criticized for being distractions from the story. It is time, she says, to rethink the function of digital visual effects. Effects artists say -- contrary to the critics -- that effects always derive from story. Digital effects are a part of production, not post-production; they are becoming part of the story development process. Digital Storytelling is grounded in filmmaking, the scriptwriting process in particular. McClean considers crucial questions about digital visual effects -- whether they undermine classical storytelling structure, if they always call attention to themselves, whether their use is limited to certain genres -- and looks at contemporary films (including a chapter-long analysis of Steven Spielberg's use of computer-generated effects) and contemporary film theory to find the answers. McClean argues that to consider digital visual effects as simply contributing the wow factor underestimates them. They are, she writes, the legitimate inheritors of film storycraft. book.
