Publisher Comments:

Electrical Engineering Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging With a keen focus on providing readers with a working knowledge of optical systems and their principles of operation, Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging employs today’s most important methods for optical analysis: geometrical ray optics, diffraction integral techniques, and the Abbe plane wave spectrum technique. This thoughtfully organized text uses fundamental electromagnetics as its underlying framework, allowing for a comprehensive understanding of both classical and modern optics theory. A wide range of optical imaging, diffracting, and signal processing devices and systems are covered, including up-to-the moment image processing and holography technology. Understanding the theories presented in Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging is an essential step for readers who want to produce effective designs using current software. The author has carefully incorporated practical mathematics throughout for readers who want to further their analytical understanding of the material. Introduction to Optics and Optical Imaging will be an indispensable guide for advanced undergraduate engineering students, practicing engineers, and optical scientists seeking a comprehensive background in physical optics.

About the Author

About the Author Craig Scott has been at Northrop Grumman Corporation since 1995. He is presently working in the areas of conformal antennas, frequency selective surfaces, and photonic bandgap structures. Prior to that, Mr. Scott worked at Rockwell International in the areas of printed phased array antennas and frequency selective surfaces, and at TRW in the areas of reflector antennas, method-of-moments software development,and frequency selective surfaces. He is the author of three other books on electromagnetics and optics.
