You are welcome to use the text for your course or personal study or for a formal course within the following guidelines.

Physical optics is also the name of an approximation commonly used in optics, electrical engineering and applied physics. In this context, it is an intermediate method between geometric optics, which ignores wave effects, and full wave electromagnetism, which is a precise theory.

Advances in Lasers and Electro Optics. This book is divided in four sections. The book presents several physical effects and properties of materials used in lasers and electro-optics in the first chapter and, in the three remaining chapters, applications of lasers and electro-optics in three different areas are presented.

This book provides a thorough introduction to the theory of electromagnetism, discusses key topics such as geometrical optics, interference, diffraction, coherence, laser beams, polarization, crystallography, and anisotropy, and offers an in-depth treatment of optical Giovanni Giusfredi.

FUNDAMENTALS OF PHOTONICS Module Basic Physical Optics Leno S. Pedrotti CORD Waco, Texas In ModuleBasic Geometrical Optics, we made use of light rays to demonstrate reflection and refraction of light and the imaging of light with mirrors and lenses.

In this module, we shift the emphasis from light rays to light waves—from geometrical optics to physical optics. Some Universities offer optics as semester courses while others offer it as modules within general physics courses in the degree programme. The book meets the needs of both has three major branches: Geometrical optics, Physical optics and Quantum optics.

Page 79 - It will readily be understood, that with the long path between the lens and the image a very slight change in the optical density of any portion of the medium in front of the lens will be sufficient to raise or depress the image above or below the edge of the diaphragm, and will consequently make itself manifest in the telescope.
