Book Summary:

In a very short time, lasers advanced from research interest to increasingly useful, commercially available tools for material processing, precision measurements, surgery, communication, and even entertainment. This 1996 book provides the background in theoretical physics necessary to understand engineering applications. It summarises relevant theories of geometrical optics, physical optics, quantum optics, and laser physics and ties them to applications in such areas as fluid mechanics, combustion, surface analysis, material processing and laser machining. Advanced topics such as laser Doppler velocimetry, laser-induced fluorescence, and holography are clearly and thoroughly explained. The book includes numerous examples and homework problems. A unique feature is the advanced research problems in each chapter that simulate real-world research and encourage independent reading and analysis.

Book Summary:

Electrical Engineering Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging With a keen focus on providing readers with a working knowledge of optical systems and their principles of operation, Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging employs today’s most important methods for optical analysis: geometrical ray optics, diffraction integral techniques, and the Abbe plane wave spectrum technique. This thoughtfully organized text uses fundamental electromagnetics as its underlying framework, allowing for a comprehensive understanding of both classical and modern optics theory. A wide range of optical imaging, diffracting, and signal processing devices and systems are covered, including up-to-the moment image processing and holography technology. Understanding the theories presented in Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging is an essential step for readers who want to produce effective designs using current software. The author has carefully incorporated practical mathematics throughout for readers who want to further their analytical understanding of the material. Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging will be an indispensable guide for advanced undergraduate engineering students, practicing engineers, and optical scientists seeking a comprehensive background in physical optics.

Book Summary:

The book introduces university undergraduates to the fascinating world of the science of light. Contemporary physics programmes are under increasing pressure to provide a balance between coverage of several traditional branches of physics and to expose students to emerging research areas. It is therefore important to provide an in depth introduction to some branches of physics, such as optics, to students who may not become professional physicists but will need physics in their chosen professions. Some Universities offer optics as semester courses while others offer it as modules within general physics courses in the degree programme. The book meets the needs of both approaches. Optics has three major branches: Geometrical optics, Physical optics and Quantum optics. Chapter 1 is about the nature of light. Geometrical optics is covered in chapters 2 to 5, Physical optics in chapters 6 to 8, and Quantum optics in chapter 9, and lays a foundation for advanced courses in applied quantum optics. The language of physics is universal, and the book is suited to students globally. However, the book recognises certain peculiarities in Africa, and is written to meet the specific needs of students in African Universities. Some students come from well equipped schools while other students come from less well equipped schools. These two groups of students attending the same course have different needs. The well prepared students need challenge, while the others need to be taught in fair detail. The book has therefore detailed discussions and explanations of difficult-to-grasp topics with the help of simple but clearly drawn and labeled diagrams. The discussions and conclusions are presented pointwise, and key words, definitions, laws, etc., are highlighted. There are a large number of problems and exercises at the end of each chapter.
