Introduction To Optics And Optical Imaging
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.
