In thirty-seven self-contained chapters this book covers a broad range of topics in classical optics. The chapters in the first half deal primarily with basic optical concepts, while those in the second half describe how these concepts can be used in a variety of technological applications. Each chapter introduces and develops a specialized topic in a comprehensive manner. Mansuripur provides the reader with accessible discussions of optical phenomena, aided by numerous diagrams and computer simulation images, with minimal mathematical detail. Topics covered include classical diffraction theory, optics of crystals, peculiarities of polarized light, thin-film multilayer stacks and coatings, geometrical optics and ray-tracing, optical microscopy, interferometry, coherence, holography, and nonlinear optics.

This book comprises 37 self-contained chapters on a range of major topics in classical optics, including the basic concepts and their technological applications. Each chapter introduces and develops a specialised topic in a comprehensive, clear and pedagogical style. The mathematical content is kept to a minimum as the book provides the reader with accessible discussions of optical phenomena, aided by numerous diagrams and computer simulation images. As such, this book will constitute the ideal supplementary-reading companion for graduate-level optics courses, and for industrial scientists and engineers developing modern optical systems.About the Author:
Masud Mansuripur received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Arya-Mehr University of Technology in Tehran, Iran (1977),a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University(1978), a Master of Science in Mathematics from Stanford University (1980),and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University (1981). He has been a Professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona since 1991. His areas of research include: optical data storage, optical signal processing, magneto-optical properties of thin magnetic films, and optical/thermal characterization of thin films and stacks. A Fellow of the Optical Society of America, he has published more than 200 papers in various technical journals, holds four patents, has given numerous invited talks at international scientific conferences, and is a contributing editor of Optics & Photonics News, the magazine of the Optical Society of America. Professor Mansuripur's published books include Introduction to Information Theory (1987), and The Physical Principles of Magneto-optical Recording (1995).
