About this Textbook

Engineering Optics is a book for students who want to apply their knowledge of optics to engineering problems, as well as for engineering students who want to acquire the basic principles of optics. It covers such important topics as optical signal processing, holography, tomography, holographic radars, fiber optical communication, electro- and acousto-optic devices, and integrated optics (including optical bistability). As a basis for understanding these topics, the first few chapters give easy-to-follow explanations of diffraction theory, Fourier transforms, and geometrical optics. Practical examples, such as the video disk, the Fresnel zone plate, and many more, appear throughout the text, together with numerous solved exercises. There is an entirely new section in this updated edition on 3-D imaging.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"...contains 15 richly illustrated chapters and very well selected exercises and problems. It is intended not only for the physics and engineering students who want to acquire the basic principles of optics, but also for researchers and engineers who use optics in their research and/or professional activity. For all these people, this book will be a valuable source of scientific information. ..." Optica Applicata

"Iizuka managed to intermingle lively and exciting ideas, humorous and enthusiastic presentations, eye-catching and tasteful cartoons, significant backbone optics materials and even some frontier state-of-the-art optics information. I did not have a dull moment reading this book. It has a very attractive style: educational, yet entertaining…."

IEEE Circuits and Devices Magazine

"I found this book most helpful in demonstrating an effective teaching approach that was especially suited for engineering students. … The examples and problem sets at the each chapter are also helpful to students and instructors … . Overall, it is a delightful book, and I would definitely recommend it to students starting out on the path of exploring optical technologies and educators who want to enlighten young engineers fascinated by optics." (Li Qian, Optics and Photonics News, November, 2008)
