Speckle Phenomena in Optics provides a comprehensive discussion of the statistical properties of speckle, as well as detailed coverage of its role in applications. Some of the applications discussed include speckle in astronomy, speckle in the eye, speckle in projection displays, speckle in coherence tomography, speckle in lithography, speckle in waveguides (modal noise), speckle in optical radar detection, and speckle in metrology. This book was written for graduate students and professionals working in a wide variety of fields.

About the Author:

Joseph W. Goodman held the William Ayer Chair in Electrical Engineering at Stanford, and also served in several administrative posts, including Chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering, and Senior Associate Dean of Engineering for Faculty Affairs. He is now the William Ayer Professor Emeritus. His work has been recognized by a variety of awards and honors, including the F.E. Terman Award of the American Society for Engineering Education, the Dennis Gabor Award of the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), the Max Born Award, the Esther Beller Hoffman Award, the Ives Medal from the Optical Society of America, and the Education Medal of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and has served as president of the Optical Society of America and the International Commission for Optics.

Review:

"The phenomenon we now call "speckle" was first sketched in 1877 by Karl Exner.  Speckle was re-discovered in the early sixties, following the invention of the laser, and has continued to fascinate scientists by its infinitely variable characteristics.  In the mid-1960s, a young Joseph Goodman, working at the Stanford Electronics Laboratories, wrote a detailed, but unpublished, report that established the basic statistical properties of speckle.  Forty years later he has written the most comprehensive book on the subject.  This is the definitive textbook, an instant classic, written by a master of his subject who is also a dedicated teacher."
—Christopher Dainty, National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland



"If you work in optics you quickly learn that you can either fight speckle to try to get rid of it or you can take advantage of speckle for many applications. Speckle Phenomena in Optics tells it all.  It gives a detailed description of speckle, explains techniques for suppressing speckle, and it gives several applications of speckle in imaging and metrology.  Once again, Joseph W. Goodman has provided us with a clearly written technical book that will become a classic in its field."
—James C. Wyant, University of Arizona



"A fascinating consequence of optical coherence, speckle has become one of the major optical phenomena. Most often, but not necessarily always, associated with laser illumination, it is relevant for the basic understanding of scattering phenomena and for application to high technology alike, from the Brownian motion to integrated circuit lithography and to the imaging of the sky by large telescopes. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, which broadly encompasses the conceptual and mathematical tools relevant for analyzing speckle phenomena together with all major applications. Its readers will benefit from J.W. Goodman's fine understanding of physics and his famous skills as a teacher."
—Pierre Chavel, CNRS/Institut d'Optique, France
