About the book

With the continuous progress of science and technology, a number of novel techniques have found themselves at the heart of cutting-edge research. However, very few of them have enjoyed relevance in more than one problem. Optical interferometry is one of the most versatile techniques. In the past, optical interferometry has made contributions to a myriad of science and engineering applications, sometimes as a purely theoretical topic, and at other times from a multitude of industrial perspectives.

This volume of works aims to collect evidence of the above-mentioned contributions by documenting original research and reviews as well as delineate clear trajectories of the technique for the readers so that new ideas can be perceived and novel connections can be made. The goal is to focus on qualitative discussions. Quantitative information is encouraged as long as it stays at an optimal level.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
