9780070237766: Introduction to Fourier Optics (McGraw-Hill Physical and Quantum Electronics Series)

The second edition of this respected text considerably expands the original and reflects the tremendous advances made in the discipline since 1968. All material has been thoroughly updated and several new sections explore recent progress in important areas, such as wavelength modulation, analog information processing, and holography. Fourier analysis is a ubiquitous tool with applications in diverse areas of physics and engineering. This book explores these applications in the field of optics with a special emphasis on applications to diffraction, imaging, optical data processing, and holography. This book can be used as a textbook to satisfy the needs of several different types of courses, and it is directed toward both engineers ad physicists. By varying the emphasis on different topics and specific applications, the book can be used successfully in a wide range of basic Fourier Optics or Optical Signal Processing courses.

"Goodman's Introduction to Fourier Optics explains scalar wave propagation and transfer functions that are essential for understanding the performance of imaging and other optical systems. It also covers several advanced topics. This is the clearest and best-written textbook I have ever read."
―James R. Fienup, Robert E. Hopkins Professor of Optics, University of Rochester

"Introduction to Fourier Optics provided me with my first introduction to this exciting field more than 30 years ago. Over the years it has continued to serve as a teaching resource, a reference book and a source of insights and inspiration for launching new research directions. Its clarity of presentation has set a gold standard for technical books possibly in all fields."
―Ravi Athale, DARPA

"Joe Goodman's wonderful book on Fourier Optics is like a good wine. It keeps getting better and better."
―Demetri Psaltis, California Institute of Technology
