Unified Physics: Optics
by R.F. Davidson, R.W. Tinnell
Publisher: Delmar Publishers 1972
Number of pages: 156
These materials are intended to introduce both basic geometric optics and the laser. The student using these materials should have a working knowledge of technical mathematics including algebra and trigonometry. The materials are presented in an action-oriented format combining many of the features normally found in a textbook with those usually associated with a laboratory manual.

This work unites fundamental physics and a novel computational inverse design approach towards energy-efficient photonic and optoelectronic devices. The book is devoted to solar cells and inverse design as a new computational paradigm in photonics.
by Lionel Laurence - School of Optics
Although primarily intended as a textbook, it is written also as a reference book for those engaged in spectacle work, for other students of Optics, and as an introduction to the study of more advanced works. Published in 1920.
