Useful optics by W. T. Welford Download PDF EPUB FB2

The most useful optics book is "Modern Optical Engineering" by Warren Smith. The Rudolf Kingslake books are also very good, depending, of course, on what, exactly, you're looking for.

I'd give "Useful Optics" one star if I found something wrong in it (not that I've been looking).4/5(4). The book is particularly useful for those of us who learned basic optics from a book like Hecht's Optics, but now need to actually put what we learned into practice.

Beware, though: the sign conventions used may be unfamiliar and may take some getting used to. Students and professionals alike have long felt the need of a modern source of practical advice on the use of optical tools in scientific research. Walter T. Welford’s Useful Optics meets this need.

Welford offers a succinct review of principles basic to the construction and use of optics in physics. His lucid explanations and clear illustrations will particularly help those whose interests. Welford's Useful Optics will prove indispensable to any researcher trying to develop and use effective optical apparatus.
