Description
Assuming little prior knowledge of physics and minimal mathematics, this book presents a complete introductory course on classical optics, as well as many of the latest advances.Presents a history of the evolution of the theory of optics, from Newton's corpuscular theory and Huygens' wave theory, to the critical contributions of Young, Fresnel, Maxwell, and finally Planck and Einstein. Introduces fundamental concepts of optics, including the electromagnetic spectrum, reflection, and refraction at both plane and curved surfaces. Explains wave motion, interference, and diffraction. Shows how the concepts of optics can be used in technologies such as lasers and optical fiber.Both physics degree students and interdisciplinary students.
