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 photonicsto show how the subject has developed in the last few decades, leading to many modern applications. Optics and Photonics: An Introduction, Second Edition thus provides a complete undergraduate course on optics in a single integrated text, and is an essential resource for allundergraduate physics, science and engineering students taking a variety of optics based courses.

Specific changes for this edition include:

New material on modern optics and photonicsRearrangement of chapters to give a logical progression, comprising groups of chapters on geometric optics, wave optics and photonicsMany more worked examples and problemsSubstantial revisions to chapters on Holography, Lasers and the Interaction of Light with Matter

Optics and Photonics, by Smith and King (2000), was designed to span this wide range, providing material .

The text has been adopted for course teaching at the University of Omaha, Nebraska, by our third author, Dan Wilkins, and he has contributed many improvements that have proved to be essential for a rigorous undergraduate course. We now present the book as an introduction to the essential elements of optics and photonics, suitable for a one- or two-semester lecture course and including an exposition of key modern developments.

Talk about Optics and Photonics: An Introduction


Malhala
It looks like there are some hard feelings here, so I will take previous reviews into account. This textbook is actually quite carefully written in that the authors teach individual experiments with precisely the level of detail and theory appropriate to the advanced undergraduate. In each section there is a figure associated with the text which is not too far (usually on the same page), has geometry which does not require self-congratulatory axiomatic proof in the text, and provides a conceptual anchor in case the reader needs a visual accompaniment. The problems in the text need some work, because they should be graded from exercises to challenge to proofs. But the examples in the text are good enough to allow some degree of self-study, which is not a common thing for textbooks. This book is not too big either. An honors high schooler could put it in the backpack for summer camp and actually get somewhere. The book as a whole may not be as coherent as possible, but I for one can deal with this. It helps that the authors understand the English language and all of its nuances.

Just finishing up a semester-long, junior-level optics course using this book. It is absolutely horrid. The students often find the exposition incomprehensible (as do I). The authors frequently pull results out of thin air when a few lines of derivation/explanation would have made things clear. The problem sets are generally useless as they are routinely too difficult or too easy. The choice of topics is over-reaching. Care should be taken with fundamentals, then applications and variations on a theme can be introduced. This book makes the fundamentals a mystery, then piles on one topic after another before the end of the chapter. I can't think of anything good to say about this book. No real online support. Even the diagrams are frequently a head-scratching affair. It should be discontinued. What garbage. I wish my students could get their money back.

I'm a graduate student, usually research on electromagnetics; recently changed to optics and photonics. The book of Bahaa was out in library, so I picked up this, wanted to give it a try.
One word - HORRIBLE.
Like what's been written in a previous review, the author just tried to pile up a bunch of hard-to-understand concepts in the book; every subsection of the book is relatively short; no detailed derivation, just results and then another results; I'm not a native English speaker, but never had a problem reading a well-written book, but the explanation in this book is just confusing. Even in my most familiar part - electromagnetic optics, a lot of the things in there are hard to understand for me; For the very basic stuff like "wavefront", the author didn't give a clear definition; useless figure illustrations.

After briefly going through the book, I have to read some other books to understand what it's talking about. Apparently not a good book for self-studying.

The cover looks cool, but NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER.
