Optics has recently evolved into one of the most flourishing fields
in physics, with photonics finding increasing application in
products such as optical thermometers, camera monitors and LED
lighting, plus numerous military applications. This book covers the
geometrical aspects of optics, the fundamental level of
understanding the technology. Beginning with how light is generated
and how fast it travels, the book discusses how materials interact
with light, how various materials affect the velocity of light, and
the ramifications of change in the speed of light. The concept of
the index of refraction, and how it is used with Snell s law to
produce image forming systems, is developed. An ideal textbook for
advanced undergraduate level courses in geometrical optics, this
book will also interest those wanting to learn the concepts and
theory of geometrical optics. Each chapter contains worked
examples, and there are exercises to reinforce the reader s
understanding of material."
