Jürgen Jahns received his degree in physics from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany. After eleven years in industry at Siemens, Munich, and AT&T Bell Laboratories, Holmdel (NJ), he became a Professor for Optical Information Technology at the University of Hagen, Germany. Focus of his work is the integration of microoptical systems and their application for computing and sensing.
"If you were wondering what microoptics actually is or how it is specifically defined, then this book not only provides the answer but represents a valuable insight into the subject today as well... In response to my own question, the book does achieve its aims - an overview of a rapidly changing subject, with basic theory and a good applications focus. It is an essential book for those interested in knowing more about the subject and as such is a good, albeit expensive, buy." (Measurement + Control)
