Principles of Optics by Maw Born in pdf


Download This PDF Book : Principles of Optics: Electromagnetic Theory of Propagation, Interference and Diffraction of Light 7th Edition by Max Born, for free.

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 forty years. 

This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new material covering the CAT scan, interference with broad-band light and the so-called Rayleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction theory. 

This edition also details scattering from inhomogeneous media and presents an account of the principles of diffraction tomography to which Emil Wolf has made a basic contribution. Several new appendices are also included. 

This new edition will be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers working in most areas of optics.


'Principles of Optics is a great book, the seventh edition is a fine one, and if you work in the field you probably ought to own it.' Physics Today

'The seventh edition of this classic optics text is the most thoroughly revised and expanded version since it was first published in 1959. The first chapters lay the foundations of the field of optics, covering basic properties of the electromagnetic field, polarization, dispersion and geometric optics. 

The chapter dedicated to optical imaging features new material about computerized axial tomography, while a whole new chapter covers scattering from inhomogeneous media including diffraction tomography. 

The text concludes with the optics of crystals, which introduces the reader to nonlinear optical phenomena.' Max Born and Emil Wolf, 'All-Time Favourites', Nature Photonics.
