Optics and Photonics

£18.99

Product description

This new book presents an introduction to the essential elements of optics and photonics. Optics as a subject, has evolved dramatically in recent years, and is now an essential part of many science and engineering disciplines as well as being commonly found throughout everyday life. Optics is a subject that touches every part of life and one that has evolved dramatically in recent years. Optics and Photonics: An Introduction brings together in one book both the basics of the subject and an introduction to recent developments and applications. Although emphasis is placed on an understanding of the fundamentals, many diverse applications have been included to highlight the relevance and importance of optics in everyday life. Carefully structured, the reader is led from first principles and theories through to diffraction and properties of interference, and then on to more advanced and interesting concepts and applications. Optics and Photonics An Introduction Provides a thorough introduction to this rapidly developing and increasingly diverse subject. Is a balanced introduction both to geometric optics, diffraction, interferometry and spectroscopy, and to photonics including lasers, optical fibres, holography, semiconductor optics and optics in nature. Includes many examples, applications and problems. This textbook is an essential, modern introduction to the field of optics and photonics, and will be of interest to all science and engineering students.
Wiley paperback. In very good condition apart from some minimal dog-earing of the front cover and immediately sub-adjacent pagesl. No marks and good binding.
