Description

Geometrical Optics in the Paraxial Area; Theory of Imaging; Sources of Light and Illumination Systems; Detectors of Light; Optical Systems for Spectral Measurements; Non-contact Measurements of Temperature; Optical Scanners and Acousto-Optics; Optical Systems for Distance and Size Measurements; Optical Systems for Flow Parameter Measurements; Color and Its Measurement.

Key Features

· Condensed background information related to most topics of modern Electro-Optics and Optical Engineering. · Coverage of each topic includes examples and problems, most of which are original and derived from realistic, high-tech projects. · Detailed solutions are provided for every problem, both theoretical and numerical; many readers will probably start with the problems/solutions and then read the background if necessary.
· Coverage includes some topics rarely covered in Optics textbooks, such as non-contact measurements of temperature, velocity, or color.

Readership

Upper-level undergraduate and graduate level courses in applied optics in departments of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and physics. Industry short courses, e.g. at OFC, CLEO, etc. Self-study/refresher in applied optics for aspiring/practicing engineers in the Micro-Electronics and Electro-Optics Industries.

Reviews

"Practical Optics provides a good view of a broad range of topics in modern electro-optics. It covers the basic areas of geometrical optics, aberration theory, sources, detectors and scanners before delving into a number of practical applications areas that the electro-optical practitioners is likely to face. These areas include optical measurements of spectra, temperature, distance, flow parameters and color. Especially beneficial are numerous examples and problems at the conclusion of each section as well as complete and detailed solutions. The book is well organized and contains a short list of references... " - Jay Land, US Army, Optics and Photonics News, November 2006
