Physics of Light and OpticsJustin
Peatross, MichaelWarePDF  345 Pages  EnglishThis curriculum was originally developed for a
seniorlevel optics course in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Brigham
Young University. Topics are addressed froma physics perspective and include the
propagation of light in matter, reflection and transmission at boundaries,
polarization effects, dispersion, coherence, ray optics and imaging,
diffraction, and the quantumnature of light. Students using this book should be
familiar with differentiation, integration, and standard trigonometric and
algebraic manipulation.
