Classical Optics and its Applications
In thirty-seven self-contained chapters this book covers a broad range of topics in classical optics. The chapters in the first half deal primarily with basic optical concepts, while those in the second half describe how these concepts can be used in a variety of technological applications. Each chapter introduces and develops a specialized topic in a comprehensive manner. Mansuripur provides the reader with accessible discussions of optical phenomena, aided by numerous diagrams and computer simulation images, with minimal mathematical detail. Topics covered include classical diffraction theory, optics of crystals, peculiarities of polarized light, thin-film multilayer stacks and coatings, geometrical optics and ray-tracing, optical microscopy, interferometry, coherence, holography, and nonlinear optics.
