duction to the quantum description of light. Topics covered include re ection and trans-mission at boundaries, dispersion, polarization e ects, di raction, coherence, ray optics and imaging, the propagation of light in matter, and the quantum nature of light.

The text is designed for upper-level undergraduate students with a physics background. Special attention is given to the problems associated with the propagation of photons, both in the presence and absence of obstacles, since these are key issues in gaining an understanding of future telecommunication systems based on wireless optics.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publishing of Introduction to Fourier Optics by Joseph Goodman, a book that has fundamental influence in the field of optical imaging.

To commemorate this anniversary a special series of talks will be presented covering Fourier optics in the classroom to the evolvement of the field. In two volumes, this book presents a detailed, systematic treatment of electromagnetics with application to the propagation of transient electromagnetic fields (including ultrawideband signals and ultrashort pulses) in dispersive absorptive media.

We describe monochromatic light propagation in uniaxial crystals by means of an exact solution of Maxwell’s equations.

We subsequently develop a paraxial scheme for describing a beam traveling orthogonal to the optical axis. We show that the Cartesian field components parallel and orthogonal to the optical axis are extraordinary and ordinary, respectively, and hence uncoupled.

An optical fiber is a flexible, transparent fiber made by drawing glass or plastic to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair. Optical fibers are used most often as a means to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber and find wide usage in fiber-optic communications, where they permit transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths (data transfer rates) than.

[Ginés Lifante] -- The basic of the BPM technique in the frequency domain relies on treating the slowly varying envelope of the monochromatic electromagnetic field under paraxial propagation, thus allowing efficient.

In addition, when an optical beam propagates through turbulent environments, light scattering loss and wavefront distortion have always been an arduous hurdle. 9 9. Andrews and R.

Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it.

Optics usually describes the behaviour of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light. Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic radiation such as X-rays, microwaves, and radio waves.

This Special Issue will address the following topics: Nonlinear optical fiber communications: Propagation models, including information-theory-friendly models - Signaling with nonlinear Fourier transforms - Capacity, capacity bounds, and information rates - Coding and shaping tailored for fiber nonlinearity - Digital and analogue signal.

Nonlinear optical materials play a pivotal role in the future evolution of nonlinear optics in general and its impact in technology and industrial applications in particular. The progress in nonlinear optics has been tremendous since the first demonstration of an all-optical nonlinear effect in the early sixties, but until recently the main visible emphasis was on the physical aspects of the.

Starting with easy-to-understand ray propagation in optical fibers, the book progresses towards the more complex topics of wave propagation in planar and cylindrical waveguides. Special emphasis has been given to the treatment of single-mode fibers the backbone of present-day optical communication systems.

Electromagnetic & Optical Pulse Propagation presents a systematic treatment of the radiation and propagation of transient electromagnetic and optical wave fields (such as those used in ultrawideband radar and communications sysyems as well as in ultrashort pulsed optics) through causal, locally linear media which exhibit both temporal dispersion and absorption.

You submitted the following rating and review. We'll publish them on our site once we've reviewed : Springer New York. PREFACE to Second Edition. Since publication of the first edition of this text in there have been several new and important developments in the theory of beam wave propagation through a random medium that we have incorporated into this second edition.

Also, there were some topics excluded in the first edition that are now included. Similarly, in optical quantum technologies and integrated quantum optical circuits, optically pumping single-photon sources and collecting the generated photons equally requires a wide bandwidth.

In addition, in such experiments achieving high coupling efficiencies is essential, for performing experiments where photon loss is by: 7. These topics are presented in Sets. andrespectively. The optical properties of the fiber material (which is usually fused silica), including its attenuation and the effects of material, modal, and waveguide dispersion on the transmission of light pulses, are discussed in Sec.
