Ian Kenyon - The Light Fantastic: A Modern Introduction to Classical and Quantum Optics
Published: 2008-03-15 | ISBN: 019856645X, 0198566468 | PDF | 630 pages | 15.27 MB


This book presents a thorough and self-contained introduction to modern optics, covering in full the three components–ray optics, wave optics, and quantum optics. The text covers all that would be needed over a comprehensive course in optics at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. Digital cameras, LCD screens, aircraft laser gyroscopes, and the optical fibre-based internet illustrate the penetration of optics in twenty-first century life: these and many more modern applications are presented from first principles.
The self-contained material allows the selection of specific themes grouped in the following way: Paraxial ray optics with matrix methods and aberrations - Interference, coherence and interferometers - Diffraction, spectrometers and Gaussian beams - Fourier optics, holography and information processing - Maxwell's theory; scattering, absorption and dispersion in bulk materials; interface behaviour -
Quantum phenomena, wave-particle duality, uncertainty principle; Schroedinger analysis of spectra, photon properties - Laser principles, He:Ne to MQW lasers, applications - Detectors: photodiodes, photomultipliers, image intensifiers; response, noise and linearlty; CCDs -
Fibre optics, from monomode fibre analysis to dense wavelength division multiplexing; fibre sensors - Photon-atom interactions, optical pumping, cooling and clocks - Second quantization, photon correlations, SPDC, entanglement, tests of quantum mechanics.
