Media reviews
Both Smith and Granqvist, the two authors of the book, are eminent optical scientists with a longstanding fondness for the visible and infrared properties of particulate composite materials. ! All technoscientists, not only physicists and materials researchers, would do well to read the list of 17 characteristics that the Smith--Granqvist vision possesses. These characteristics delineate a blueprint for research directions ! . Remarkable features of this book are the bridges built throughout the volume with contemporary research topics through call-out boxes. ! The book is profusely illustrated, mostly in black and white but also with 10 pages of multicolored illustrations. Occasional flashes of quiet humor grace the book ! . Another remarkable feature of this book is its price. !Other academic publishers should take note. ! --Akhlesh Lakhtakia, Pennsylvania State University, Journal of Nanophotonics, Vol. 5, 2011
