Optical Methods in Experimental Mechanics

Part 44: NEXUS


  • Gary Cloud

  • The series, Optical Methods - Back to Basics, is written by University Distinguished Professor Gary Cloud of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. It began by introducing the nature and description of light and will evolve, with each issue, into topics ranging from diffraction through phase shifting interferometries. The intent is to keep the series educationally focused by coupling text with illustrative photos and diagrams that can be used by practitioners in the classroom, as well as in industry. Unless otherwise noted, the graphics in this series were created by the author.

  • The series author, Professor Gary Cloud (SEM Fellow), is internationally known for his work in optical measurement methods and for his book, Optical Methods of Engineering Analysis.
