Physics of Light and Optics

Physics of Light and Optics

This curriculum was originally developed for a senior-level 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.
