Download e-book for kindle: Basic Optics: Principles and Concepts by Avijit Lahiri

By Avijit Lahiri

Basic Optics: ideas and Concepts addresses in nice aspect the elemental rules of the technology of optics, and their similar suggestions. The publication offers a lucid and coherent presentation of an intensive diversity of strategies from the sphere of optics, that is of primary relevance to numerous extensive parts of technology, together with physics, chemistry, and biology.

With its broad variety of discourse, the book’s content material fingers scientists and scholars with wisdom of the fundamental ideas of classical and glossy optics. it may be used as a reference e-book and likewise as a supplementary textual content via scholars in school and college degrees and may, whilst, be of substantial use to researchers and teachers.

The publication consists of 9 chapters and incorporates a good deal of fabric no longer coated in lots of of the extra famous textbooks at the topic. The technology of optics has gone through significant adjustments within the final fifty years as a result of advancements within the components of the optics of metamaterials, Fourier optics, statistical optics, quantum optics, and nonlinear optics, all of which locate their position during this booklet, with a transparent presentation in their simple ideas. Even the extra conventional components of ray optics and wave optics are elaborated in the framework of electromagnetic thought, at a degree extra primary than what one reveals in lots of of the presently to be had textbooks. therefore, the eikonal approximation resulting in ray optics, the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of ray optics, the quantum theoretic interpretation of interference, the vector and dyadic diffraction theories, the geometrical idea of diffraction, and related different subject matters of easy relevance are provided in transparent phrases.

The presentation is lucid and chic, shooting the basic magic and beauty of physics.

All this taken jointly makes the ebook a special textual content, of significant modern relevance, within the box of optics.

Avijit Lahiri is a widely known researcher, instructor, and writer, with guides in numerous components of physics, and with a huge variety of present pursuits, together with physics and the philosophy of science.

  • Provides wide and carefully exhaustive insurance of classical and sleek optics
