This invaluable second edition provides more in-depth discussions and examples in various chapters. Based largely on the authors' own in-class lectures as well as researchers in the area, the comprehensive textbook serves two purposes. The first introduces some traditional topics such as matrix formalism of geometrical optics, wave propagation and diffraction, and some fundamental background on Fourier optics. The second presents the essentials of acousto-optics and electro-optics, and provides the students with experience in modeling the theory and applications using a commonly used software tool MATLAB®.

The field of optics has become central to major developments in medical imaging, remote sensing, communication, micro- and nanofabrication, and consumer technology, among other areas. Applications of optics are now found in products such as laser printers, bar-code scanners, and even mobile phones. There is a growing need for engineers to understand the principles of optics in order to develop new instruments and improve existing optical instrumentation. Based on a graduate course taught at Northeastern University, Optics for Engineers provides a rigorous, practical introduction to the field of optics. Drawing on his experience in industry, the author presents the fundamentals of optics related to the problems encountered by engineers and researchers in designing and analyzing optical systems. Beginning with a history of optics, the book introduces Maxwell’s equations, the wave equation, and the eikonal equation, which form the mathematical basis of the field of optics. It then leads readers through a discussion of geometric optics that is essential to most optics projects. The book also lays out the fundamentals of physical optics—polarization, interference, and diffraction—in sufficient depth to enable readers to solve many realistic problems. It continues the discussion of diffraction with some closed-form expressions for the important case of Gaussian beams. A chapter on coherence guides readers in understanding the applicability of the results in previous chapters and sets the stage for an exploration of Fourier optics. Addressing the importance of the measurement and quantification of light in determining the performance limits of optical systems, the book then covers radiometry, photometry, and optical detection. It also introduces nonlinear optics. This comprehensive reference includes downloadable MATLAB® code as well as numerous problems, examples, and illustrations. An introductory text for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, it is also a useful resource for researchers and engineers developing optical systems.

MATLAB for Photomechanics A Primer

The term "photomechanics" describes a suite of experimental techniques which use optics (photo) for studying problems in mechanics. The field has been in existence for some time, but has always lagged behind other experimental and numerical techniques. The main reason for this is that the interpretation of data, which whilst providing whole-field visualization, is not in a form readily amenable to the end-user. Digital image processing has become common within the photomechanics community. However, one approach does not fit all, and subtle variations in technique and method have been developed by different groups working on specific applications. This primer enables the user to get started with their experimental analysis quickly. It is based on the universally popular MATLAB® software, which includes dedicated and optimized functions for a variety of image processing tasks. These can readily scripted, along with the necessary mathematical expressions, for particular experimental techniques. The book provides an introduction to some of the optical techniques, and then introduces MATLAB® routines specific to the image processing in experimental mechanics. There are also case studies on particular techniques. As part of the book, a collection of M-files is provided on CD-ROM, which also contains example images and test code. This provides a starting point for the user, who can then easily add or edit statements or function for their own images. MATLAB® is a registered trademark of The MathWorks, Inc.

The bandwidth available using optical fibers and free space links is considerable but growth in traffic driven by Internet based applications means that it will be stretched within the near future. To design the systems of the future, it is necessary to encompass both baseline performance prediction and the improvements by correction techniques such as coding and equalization. This text gathers together the key techniques ranging from information theoretic limits to the impact of physical impairments for the first time, enabling workers in the field to tackle design and optimization problems rapidly and effectively.

"This reference book provides a fully integrated novel approach to the development of high power, single transverse mode, edge-emitting diode lasers by addressing the complementary topics of device engineering (Part 1), reliability engineering (Part 2) and device diagnostics (Part 3) in the same book in altogether nine comprehensive chapters, and thus closes the gap in the current book literature. Diode laser fundamentals are discussed, followed by an elaborate discussion of problem-oriented design guidelines and techniques, and by a systematic treatment of the origins of laser degradation and a thorough exploration of the engineering means to address for effective remedies and enhanced optical strength. The discussion covers also stability criteria of critical laser characteristics and key laser robustness factors. Clear design considerations are discussed in the context of reliability engineering concepts and models, along with typical programs for reliability tests and laser product qualifications. A final extended part of novel, advanced diagnostic methods covers in detail, for the first time in book literature, performance- and reliability-impacting factors such as temperature, stress and material instabilities. Further key features include: Furnishes comprehensive practical design guidelines by considering also reliability related effects and key laser robustness factors, and discusses basic laser fabrication and packaging issues. Discusses in detail diagnostic investigations of diode lasers, the fundamentals of the applied approaches and techniques, many of them pioneered by the author to be fit-for-purpose and novel in the application. Provides a systematic insight into laser degradation modes such as catastrophic optical damage, and covers a wide range of technologies to increase the optical strength of diode lasers. Discusses basic concepts and techniques of laser reliability engineering, and provides for the first time in a book details on a standard commercial program for testing the reliabity of high power diode laser. Semiconductor Laser Engineering, Reliability and Diagnostics reflects the extensive expertise of the author in the diode laser field both as a top scientific researcher as well as a key developer of highly reliable devices. It features two hundred figures and tables illustrating numerous aspects of diode laser engineering, fabrication, packaging, reliability, performance, diagnostics and applications, and an extensive list of references to all addressed technical topics at the end of each chapter. With invaluable practical advice, this novel reference book is suited to practising researchers in diode laser technologies, and to postgraduate engineering students."--

About the Book Digital (or electronic) holography and its application to 3-D display is one of the formidable problems of evolving areas of high technology that has been receiving great attention in recent years. The realization of life-size interactive 3-D displays has been a seemingly unobtainable goal. Technology is not quite at that level yet, but advances in 3-D display now allow us to take important steps toward the achievement of this objective. The reader is presented with the state-of-the-art developments in both digital holography and 3-D display techniques. The book contains a large amount of research material as well as reviews, new ideas and insights that will be useful for graduate students, scientists, and engineers working in the field. About the Editor Ting-Chung Poon is a professor at Virgina Tech in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where he is also Director of the Optical Image Processing Laboratory. His research interests include acousto-optics, hybrid (optica/electronic/digital) 3-D image processing, optical scanning cryptography, optical scanning holography, 3-D holographic display, and 3-D holographic microscopy.
