A comprehensive cross section of phase-space optics

This definitive volume highlights an elegant, unified approach to optical rays, waves, and system design using cutting-edge phase-space techniques. Phase-Space Optics: Fundamentals and Applications details theoretical concepts of phase space as well as novel engineering applications in specific disciplines. This authoritative guide includes full coverage of sampling, superresolution imaging, and the phase-space interpretation of ultrafast optics. Work with Wigner optics, analyze phase-space equations, develop wave propagation models, and gain a new understanding of optical sources and systems. Discover how to:

  • Describe optical phenomena using Wigner and ambiguity functions
  • Perform phase-space rotations using ray transformation matrices
  • Influence the trade-off between pupil size and depth of field
  • Analyze and design optical signals using the Radon-Wigner transform
  • Accomplish superresolution by squeezing phase space
  • Interpret the intimate relationship between radiometry and coherence
  • Use basic algebra to discover self-imaging, Fresnel diffraction, and the Talbot effect
  • Develop discrete models, sampling criteria, and interpolation formulae
  • Work with ultrafast processes and complex space-time structures
