Describing and evaluating the basic principles and methods of subsurface sensing and imaging, Introduction to Subsurface Imaging is a clear and comprehensive treatment that links theory to a wide range of real-world applications in medicine, biology, security and geophysical/environmental exploration. It integrates the different sensing techniques (acoustic, electric, electromagnetic, optical, x-ray or particle beams) by unifying the underlying physical and mathematical similarities, and computational and algorithmic methods. Time-domain, spectral and multisensor methods are also covered, whilst all the necessary mathematical, statistical and linear systems tools are given in useful appendices to make the book self-contained. Featuring a logical blend of theory and applications, a wealth of color illustrations, homework problems and numerous case studies, this is suitable for use as both a course text and as a professional reference.
Bahaa Saleh is the Dean of the College of Optics and Photonics at the University of Central Florida. Prior to this he was Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University and Deputy Director of the NSF Gordon Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems. He authored Photoelectron Statistics (1978) and co-authored Fundamentals of Photonics (2007, 2nd edition), and he is Fellow of IEEE, OSA, SPIE and the Guggenheim Foundation. He has received numerous awards, including the 1999 OSA Esther Hoffman Beller Award for outstanding contributions to optical science and engineering education, the 2006 Kuwait Prize for his contributions to optical science and the 2008 Distinguished Service Award of OSA.
