Comprises the fundamental materials and basic concepts of modern optics and will be particularly valuable for those students advancing to higher-level electro-optics courses. The broad coverage opens with a discussion of linear transform systems, which will serve as a background to the electro-optics system approach. After reviewing fundamental concepts of classical optics and discussing photodetectors and electro-optic devices, it covers the electromagnetic nature of light, principles of diffraction optics and lasers. The final chapters deal with the phenomenon of wavefront reconstruction as well as optical signal processing systems and introduce optical fibers. Each chapter concludes with references and problems.
