About this Item

This text provides a comprehensive, balanced account of traditional optics, as well as many of the recent developments in the field. Designed to meet the optics course requirements for undergraduate students of science and engineering, Optics is also an excellent reference source for practicing engineers wanting to obtain a greater understanding of optics. In preparing the 5th edition of the book, many topics in Chapters 14, 18, 22, 23, 26, 27 and 28 have been rewritten and many new diagrams have also been introduced. In addition, a section on Special Theory of Relativity has been added. Many new colored photographs in the preliminary pages have also been added which should help clarify important concepts in the field. TABLE OF CONTENTS: Table of Contents 1. History of Optics 2.
