Fundamentals of Photonics : Basic Geometrical Optics

Fundamentals of Photonics : Basic Geometrical Optics
Optics is the cornerstone of photonics systems and applications. In this module, you will learn
about one of the two main divisions of basic optics—geometrical (ray) optics. In the module to
follow, you will learn about the other—physical (wave) optics. Geometrical optics will help you
understand the basics of light reflection and refraction and the use of simple optical elements such
as mirrors, prisms, lenses, and fibers. Physical optics will help you understand the phenomena of
light wave interference, diffraction, and polarization; the use of thin film coatings on mirrors to
enhance or suppress reflection; and the operation of such devices as gratings and quarter-wave
plates.
