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.

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+-+795797563411ocn004326283book19771.00Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum OpticsFourth Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics : [abstracts] : June 8-10, 1977, University of Rochester, Rochester, New YorkConference proceedings11ocn758807764com20100.74Progress in opticsIn 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.

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 cloning11ocn007094098book19801.00Wolf, EmilTheoretical methods for the analysis of coherent optical images11ocn758807760com2010Progress in optics11ocn758807813com2010Progress in optics11ocn758807824com2010Progress in optics11ocn690317672book19890.86Eberly, J.
