Basic electro-optics for electrical engineers

Author: G D Boreman
Publisher: Bellingham, Wash. : SPIE Optical Engineering Press, 1998.
Series: Tutorial texts in optical engineering, v. TT 31.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This text introduces imaging, radiometry, sources, detectors, and lasers, with special emphasis on flux-transfer issues. The first-order approach enables students to make back-of-the-envelope calculations needed for initial setup of optical apparatus. It is intended for students and newcomers to electro-optics.
