Not that other authors have not paid sufficient attention to this aspect, the emphasis and visibility of topics may, however, differ from book to book.

Admittedly, a textbook on optics cannot over-emphasize topics of engineering interest without compromising on basics of optics. Pedagogy is the other thought process that has guided the preparation of the manuscript. The collection and sequencing of the material have been done to ensure continuity in the learning process. By and large, all selected topics have been treated rigorously, in depth, and as far as possible completely.

The book is primarily aimed for senior undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students. Students at that level with sufficiently advanced skills may not need solved examples and illustrations. However, first few problems of most chapters are relatively easy and should essentially serve that purpose.

Consulting different books is an enriching experience for students and teachers alike, but availability of a textbook which can delineate broad outlines of a course or courses may be desirable. Leaving a few topics and emphasizing some others should provide the necessary flexibility to adopt this textbook for different courses on optics, applied optics, and photonics.

The reader may find sequencing of some topics a bit unusual.

Coherence of light, for example, is taken up much before diffraction. This is to make students realize that real light is polychromatic and only partially coherent. Treating light through plane waves throughout the book and bringing in polychromaticity and partial coherence towards the end defeats this purpose.

Waves and Optics

Introducing coherence early on puts students in an advantageous position to deal with real light in basic optics, as for example in interference studies. As in other fields, consistency and uniqueness of notations do not exist in optics. I have, however, tried to use simple and consistent notations, but at times deliberate departures could not be avoided. The figures are drawn using Xfig software.

The book contains eight original photographs besides three photographs Figs. Wherever I leaned substantially on a certain approach, original authors are acknowledged.

I apologize for inadvertent omissions.

Most derivations in the book are sufficiently detailed. Utmost care was exercised to eliminate errors, but this cannot be guaranteed. Hopefully, serious mistakes should not be too many. Effort has been made, as far as possible, to make each chapter self contained.

Table of contents

Chapter 1 deals with light propagation in isotropic and anisotropic media. This is a bit of a departure from tradition. Usually, light propagation in anisotropic media is considered much later. Anisotropic media, however, provide a more general and beautiful example of light propagation and their discussion at this stage seems quite appropriate.

Likewise, coherence of light waves is introduced in Chapter 2 to help develop a realistic appreciation of real light at an early stage. Elementary knowledge of Fourier transforms and Fraunhofer diffraction should suffice to follow the contents of this chapter.
