Colour and The Optical Properties of Materials: An Exploration of the Relationship Between Light, the Optical Properties of Materials and Colour - Second Edition

Our day-to-day world is ablaze with colour.   Information we seek is presented in bright colours, via displays ranging in size from small touch screen mobile phones to large screen plasma televisions.    An understanding of the scientific principles underlying the generation of colour is increasingly important to a wide range of academic disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and engineering. 
Now in its second edition, Colour and the Optical Properties of Materials provides a thorough scientific overview of all aspects of colour and its relationship to the chemical and physical properties of materials.  Primarily aimed at undergraduate students but of interest to anyone seeking an understanding of colour in its many manifestations, the book focuses attention on the ways that colour is produced and how these govern device applications.
