Review quote

`The book providesa useful, compact reference work for the infrated specialist and a good tutorial for the non-specialist, particularly through the two introductory chapters on the operating principles and assessment of devices, and theoretical sections dispersed amongst the other chapters. Chapters 1 and 2 are recommended reading before full immersion in the later chapters, which are all by well-known.'
