Klaus-Peter Möllmann received his PhD from the Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany, studying strongly doped narrow band semiconductors at low temperatures and later, for his habilitation, MCT photo detectors. He subsequently held positions with the Humboldt Uni-versity and with several businesses in industry. Professor Möllmann?s research interests include MEMS technology, infrared thermal imaging, and spectroscopy. He is the co-author of about 100 scienti¿ c and didactical papers.
Both authors are professors of experimental physics at the University of Applied Sciences in Brandenburg, Germany.
“This hardcover, richly illustrated hands-on guide is specifically written in an understandable style for practitioners in the field of IR imaging, for physics and science teachers and for researchers.” (Mikroniek, 1 January 2013)"This book is an excellent reference and practical handbook for infrared thermal imaging. It is appropriate for practitioners as well as imaging professionals and graduate students in the fields of image science, optics and applied thermal physics." (Optics & Photonics News, 23 November 2011)
"Readers who may want to repeat the experiments will appreciate the colour IR photos that are equipped with temperature scales from which one may learn which settings to use in order to achieve the best visibility of the phenomena to be observed. . . One can only wish that future authors of similar books will try to meet the standards set by this one." (European Journal of Physics, 2011)
