Color and Its Applications
by Matthew Luckiesh - D. Van Nostrand company , 1921
The book presents a condensed treatment of the science of color. An attempt has been made to cover as many phases of the subject as possible within the confines of a small volume. The science of color is treated from the viewpoint of applications.
General and Practical Optics
by Lionel Laurence - School of Optics , 1920
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.
Physics of Light and Optics
by Justin Peatross, Michael Ware - Brigham Young University , 2011
A book designed for an advanced undergraduate optics course for physics majors. Topics include the propagation of light in matter, reflection and transmission at boundaries, polarization effects, dispersion, coherence, ray optics and imaging, etc.
Classical and Modern Optics
by Daniel A. Steck - University of Oregon , 2010
Notes for an optics course at the advanced undergraduate level. Topics covered: Ray Optics; Electromagnetic Theory; Interference; Gaussian Beams; Fabry-Perot Cavities; Polarization; Fresnel Relations; Thin Films; Fourier Optics; etc.
by Daniel Suson - Texas A&M University-Kingsville , 1999
A mathematical treatment of the modern theory of optics. Topics include Huygen's principle as applied to geometric optics, interference, diffraction, polarization, electromagnetic theory of light, interaction of light with matter, and quantum optics.
by P. Ewart - University of Oxford , 2008
Contents: Geometrical Optics; Physical Optics; Fraunhofer Diffraction; Fourier methods in Optics; Optical instruments and fringe localization; The diffraction grating spectrograph; The Michelson Interferometer; The Fabry-Perot interferometer; etc.
by J. B. Tatum , 2006
Reflection and refraction at a plane surface, the rainbow, differential form of Snell's law, lens and mirror calculations, designing an achromatic doublet, introduction to optical instruments, the camera, the telescope, the microscope, etc.
