Introduction to Quantum Optics - Grynberg, Aspect, Fabre: I found this book to be a very good introduction for someone with some background in QM at undergrad level. As the subtitle suggests, the authors first start with the semi-classical description of light-matter interactions before moving on to the fully quantised treatment.

Rapid development of optoelectronic devices and laser techniques poses an important task of creating and studying, from one side, the structures capable of effectively converting, modulating, and recording optical data in a wide range of radiation energy densities and frequencies, from another side, the new schemes and approaches capable to activate and simulate the modern.

Abstract. Optics has, since ancient times, being used as aid for the examination of human patients and in some therapeutic treatments. Many of the optic medical instruments in use today were developed in the nineteenth century and, with the advent of optical fibers and laser light sources in the mid twentieth century, a new generation of medical devices, instruments, and techniques have Cited by: 1.

Perhaps it shouldn’t surprise us, then, that File Size: 1MB. Melvyn Bragg's In Our Time series regularly enlightens and entertains substantial audiences on BBC Radio 4.

For this book he has selected episodes which reflect the diversity of the radio programmes, and takes us on an amazing tour through the history of ideas, from philosophy, physics and history to religion, literature and biology/5(23).

His book Introduction to Fourier Optics is what I consider the primary book on the subject, and I also own Statistical Optics, which I find to be a great reference for all sorts of phenomenon including partial coherence, speckle, and random media. Note that Statistical Optics is not an introductory level text.

A list of In Our Time episodes and clips related to "Optics". This is not an easy question to answer. However I will list some of the books that I have used, and found instrumental to obtain good perspective on topics.

Just to note, Optics is a very vast area to cover. It involves several centuries of accum. Introduction to Modern Optics: Less comprehensive that Optics but much cheaper.

Applied Photographic Optics: Related directly to photography. The reason it's not on top of the list is because it's more complicated than others, not elementary.

Opticks: or, A Treatise of the Reflexions, Refractions, Inflexions and Colours of Light is a book by English natural philosopher Isaac Newton that was published in English in (A scholarly Latin translation appeared in ) The book analyzes the fundamental nature of light by means of the refraction of light with prisms and lenses, the diffraction of light by closely spaced sheets of.

Summary One of the most readable of all the great classics of physical science, Opticks presents a comprehensive survey of 18th-century knowledge of light. Newton describes his experiments with spectroscopy, colors, lenses, reflection, refraction, and more, in language lay readers can easily follow.

Opticks is a book by English natural philosopher Isaac Newton that was published. Our preference for citations is to use the normal style for a book, but replace the publisher with a reference to this web site.
