Optical Principles and Technology for Engineers
Discussing the principles of physical and geometrical optics from an engineering point of view, this book explains current optical technology and the applications of optical methods in a wide variety of fields, from astronomy and agriculture to medicine and semiconductors. It offers guidance in the selection of optical components for the construction of bread-board models using commercially available, standard components, and provides immediately useful equations without unnecessary mathematical derivations.
