The Infrared and Electro-Optical Systems Handbook

New for August 2021. Electro-optics is slightly off-topic from microwave engineering...  but since it is a close cousin, you will want to know the fundamentals.

The Infrared and Electro-Optical Systems Handbook was an eight-volume set that would have cost you $1000 back in the 1980s.  You can find individual volumes of it for sale at on-line booksellers for $50 to $100. It was originally published in 1978 and revised in 1993.  The DTIC web site shows that it has been released for unlimited distribution, presumably because it was paid for by the US government. We gathered up the eight volumes and posted them below.  Enjoy!
