Summary "The second edition of this successful textbook provides a clear, well-written introduction to both the fundamental principles of optics and the key aspects of photonics to show how the subject has developed in the last few decades, leading to many modern applications. The book thus provides a complete undergraduate course on optics in a single integrated text. The new edition has been completely updated."--BOOK JACKET.
