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 /5. Poisson, Fresnel, and Arago: Light is waves. In , Augustin-Jean Fresnel presented a new theory of diffraction. Siméon Poisson, who favored Newton's corpuscular theory of light, analyzed Fresnel's equations and concluded that if they were correct, then the shadow of a sphere illuminated by a point light source would show a spot of light at the center of the shadow.
Although light normally travels in straight lines, you can make it bend round corners by shooting it down thin glass or plastic pipes called fiber-optic cables. Reflection and refraction are at work inside these "light pipes" to make rays of light follow an unusual path they wouldn't normally take. Artwork: When light from a laser (1) passes. When light propagates in a transparent material medium, its speed is in general less than the speed in vacuum c. An interesting consequence of this is that a light ray will change direction when passing from one medium to another. Since the light ray appears to be . MHR • Light and Optical Systems Find Out Reading with Intensity Light intensity is determined by how much energy is received on a surface. In this activity, you will observe how distance affects the intensity (brightness) of light striking an object. Safety Precautions Materials book lamp with the shade removed 60 W bulb W bulb.
58 REFLECTED LIGHT OPTICS where n is the refractive index ofthe medium and c and Cm represent the velocity oflight in a vacuum and in the medium, respectively. Since Cm is always less thanc,n isalways greaterthan ,although for airn = (~I). Since the refractive index is a ratio oftwo velocities, it is a dimensionlessFile Size: 3MB. The Reflection of Light: Color, Thin Films, and Interference: The Refraction of Light: Polarized Light: The Refraction of Light, Part II: Optical Spectroscopy & Neon Lights: Lenses and Geometrical Optics: Visible/X-Rays/UV/IR. The Light and Optics Experiment Book includes 23 experiments that guide students in the exploration of the fundamentals of geometrical and wave optics, lasers, laser safety, optical alignment, and experimental data analysis.
