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 covers the
following topics: Waves and Photons, The Physics of Waves,The Huygens-Fresnel
Principle, Diffraction, Maxwell's Equations, Polarisation, Fermats Principle,
Spherical Lenses and Mirrors, Crystal Symmetry and Optical Instruments.
This note describes the following topics: Linear systems and the
Fourier transform in optics, Properties of Light, Geometrical Optics, Wave
Optics, Fourier Optics, Spatial and Temporal Field Correlations, Low-coherence
Interferometry, Optical Coherence Tomography, Polarization, Waveplates,
Electro-optics and Acousto-optics.
Rapid development of optoelectronic devices and laser techniques poses
an important task of creating and studying, from one side, the structures
capable of effectively converting, modulating, and recording optical data in a
wide range of radiation energy densities and frequencies, from another side, the
new schemes and approaches capable to activate and simulate the modern features.
Topics covered includes: Stimulated Raman Scattering in Quantum Dots and
Nanocomposite Silicon Based Materials, Reflection and Transmission of a Plane
TE-Wave at a Lossy, Saturating, Nonlinear Dielectric Film, Nonlinear
Ellipsometry by Second Harmonic Generation, Stimulated Raman Scattering in
Quantum Dots and Nanocomposite Silicon Based Materials, Nonlinear Ellipsometry
by Second Harmonic Generation, Donor-Acceptor Conjugated Polymers and Their
Nanocomposites for Photonic Applications.

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
This note explains the following topics: Classical Electromagnetic
Fields, Rays, Beams, Optical Resonators, Nonlinear Optics, Guided Waves in
Planar Structures, Interaction of Radiation and Matter: Semiclassical Theory,
Interaction of Radiation and Matter: Quantum Theory.
