Revue de presse

"Principles of Optics is a great, rigorous, ponderous, unwavering mathematical tract that deals with a welath of topics...a great book, the seventh edition is a fine one, and as I said, if you work in the field you probably should own it." Physics Today

Présentation de l'éditeur

Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century, and probably the most influential book in optics published in the past 40 years. The new edition is the first ever thoroughly revised and expanded edition of this standard text. Among the new material, much of which is not available in any other optics text, is a section on the CAT scan (computerized axial tomography), which has revolutionized medical diagnostics. The book also includes a new chapter on scattering from inhomogeneous media which provides a comprehensive treatment of the theory of scattering of scalar as well as of electromagnetic waves, including the Born series and the Rytov series. The chapter also presents an account of the principles of diffraction tomography - a refinement of the CAT scan - to which Emil Wolf, one of the authors, has made a basic contribution by formulating in 1969 what is generally regarded to be the basic theorem in this field. The chapter also includes an account of scattering from periodic potentials and its connection to the classic subject of determining the structure of crystals from X-ray diffraction experiments, including accounts of von Laue equations, Bragg's law, the Ewald sphere of reflection and the Ewald limiting sphere, both generalized to continuous media. These topics, although originally introduced in connection with the theory of X-ray diffraction by crystals, have since become of considerable relevance to optics, for example in connection with deep holograms. Other new topics covered in this new edition include interference with broad-band light, which introduces the reader to an important phenomenon discovered relatively recently by Emil Wolf, namely the generation of shifts of spectral lines and other modifications of spectra of radiated fields due to the state of coherence of a source. There is also a section on the so-called Rayleigh-Sommerfield diffraction theory which, in recent times, has been finding increasing popularity among optical scientists. There are also several new appendices, including one on energy conservation in scalar wavefields, which is seldom discussed in books on optics. The new edition of this standard reference will continue to be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers working in most areas of optics.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Oui, mais bon... 18 novembre 2005
Comme beaucoup de physiciens, je serais très critique à l'égard de cette référence. Trop de choses, trop d'équations qui ne servent à rien, un traitement hyper non-compact, bref on s'y perd. Beaucoup de livres, certes plus simples (comme celui de Hecht), sont meilleurs. Un exemple: un bazar pas possible pour l'étude des cristaux anisotropes biréfringents, 25 équations, mais pas de commentaires, pas d'exemple, pas d'application... Autant lire le Landau sur l'électrodynamique des milieux continus, qui dit la même chose en 1 page! Pas d'exemple, pas d'application, mais c'est clair au moins. Et des équations qui pourraient être écrites mieux, de façon plus concise, dans un style plus direct. Autre exemple: tout ce qui relève de l'électrodynamique ressemble vaguement au Jackson, mais en 120000 fois moins bon et plus long. Etudiants: fuyez ce livre! Chercheurs: vous n'aimez pas ce livre, je le sais. Ouai.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good professional reference book, but not for students. 31 décembre 2001
Par GPK - Publié sur Amazon.com
Already for many years, this is a classic on optics. Almost any subject you can think of is covered in this book, in a fundamental way. That is its strength and its weakness: experienced scientists will find everything they need, but for students it is not a good book because it is far too detailed: they will get lost in all the mathematical details before they grasp the essence of the subject.

This problem also exists - to a lesser extent - for professionals who try to use the book to fill in a gap in their knowledge: they too will find themselves asking why they have to read so many (well thought-through) pages before the authors finally make their point.

My advice: use other books to study from, and use this book when you are already experienced and need a high-quality reference work.

A note for scienctists: please mention section numbers when referring to this book in your own publications.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Classic 12 décembre 2002
Par Yvan Dutil - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a classic with all problems associated. Half of the reference quoted have been written before the WWII. Very useful if you like to quote original papers. This book cover most topics of the classical optics but hardy cover modern topics.
However, it is hard to read and use a weird notation. Certainly not useful for rapid referencing. Like the bible, use it only when you have serious problem to deal with.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It has everything about classical wave optics! 21 septembre 2000
Par Jinwon Sung - Publié sur Amazon.com
This seventh edition of the famous classic standard book on optics is really neat! The notations, symbols became a little more modern than the previous editions. Also the shapes of the characters in the equations looks much more pretty so it helps reading, understanding. As most of you know, this has everything you need to study about, refer to classical wave optics. The only weak point of this book is the material covering geometrical optics. It's too abstract, mathematical and lacks modern treatment of optical designs, aberrations. But, regarding the wave optics, it's hard to find any flaws, downsides. Even though I am working on micro-photonic elements, I often need to refer to this book for some wave optics principles, knowledges. But this book alone does not cover the whole optics including optical design, photonics. If you want to have the best minimum combination of books covering the basics of the entire optics. I would recommend "Fundamentals of Photonics(Saleh)", "Modern Optical Engineering(Smith)" and this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book 14 mars 2003
Par "bomohwkl" - Publié sur Amazon.com
It is just a rare book on physical optics based on Maxwell equations. Rarely a book states the assumptions,the validity of the equations, the principles and how the equations arrived. Certainly, it is a great book for postgraduates and researchers in physical optics not so for undergraduate students who don't want to go through all the mathematics.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A true classic in its field 2 avril 2000
Par Reliability Guru - Publié sur Amazon.com
It should be on the shelf of every serious optical engineer or scientist. I find myself referring to it at least monthly. What more needs to be said?
