Introduction to the theory of coherence and polarization of light by Emil Wolf ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Before the development of lasers, all available light sources, whether used in laboratories or found in nature, generated light which underwent uncontrollable fluctuations inherent in the emission process. Such fluctuations are detrimental to many applications. This effect is almost completely suppressed in laser radiation, making it possible to use lasers for a variety of applications. The underlying theory of fluctuating optical fields is known as coherence theory. Another manifestation of the fluctuations is the so-called phenomenon of polarization. This book is the first to provide a unified treatment of these two aspects of statistical optics, made possible by very recent discoveries, largely due to the author of this book. This will be of great interest to graduate students and researchers in physics and engineering in optical communications, the propagation of laser beams through fibers and through the turbulent atmosphere, and optical image formation. Each chapter contains problems to aid self-study
Second Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics : June 22-24, 1966, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York : final report by Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics ( Book )
3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Principles of optics : electromagnetic theory of propagation, interference and diffraction of light by Max Born ( Book )
3 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This classic text presents optics deductively as a system based on Maxwell's equations. It deals with those optical phenomena that can be described with the help of a continuous distribution of matter, and provides an overview of optics as a whole
Selected works of Emil Wolf with commentary by Emil Wolf ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This invaluable book presents most of the important papers of Emil Wolf, published over half-a-century. It covers chiefly diffraction theory (especially the analysis of the focal region), the theory of direct and inverse scattering, phase-space methods in quantum mechanics, the foundation of radiometry, phase conjugation and coherence theory. Several papers which have become classics of the optical literature are included, such as those on Wolf's rigorous formulation of the theory of partial coherence and partial polarization, the introduction of diffraction tomography, and his discovery of co
Fourth Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics : [abstracts] : June 8-10, 1977, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York by Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics ( Book )

Progress in optics ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In the fourty-six years that have gone by since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science. The volumes in this series which have appeared up to now contain more than 300 review articles by distinguished research workers, which have become permanent records for many important developments. - Metamaterials - Polarization Techniques - Linear Baisotropic Mediums - Ultrafast Optical Pulses - Quantum Imaging - Point-Spread Funcions - Discrete Wigner Functions

Progress in optics ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In the thirty-seven years that have gone by since the first volume of Progress in Optics was published, optics has become one of the most dynamic fields of science. At the time of inception of this series, the first lasers were only just becoming operational, holography was in its infancy, subjects such as fiber optics, integrated optics and optoelectronics did not exist and quantum optics was the domain of only a few physicists. The term photonics had not yet been coined. Today these fields are flourishing and have become areas of specialisation for many science and engineering students and numerous research workers and engineers throughout the world. Some of the advances in these fields have been recognized by awarding Nobel prizes to seven physicists in the last twenty years. The volumes in this series which have appeared up to now contain nearly 190 review articles by distinguished research workers, which have become permanent records for many important developments. They have helped optical scientists and optical engineers to stay abreast of their fields. There is no sign that developments in optics are slowing down or becoming less interesting. - Gaussian apodization and beam propagation - Electromagnetically-induced transparency - Three-dimensional electromagnetic fields - Quantum cryptography - Optical quantum cloning
