Signal Processing Using Optics covers the fundamental aspects of optical signal processing at an introductory level and also discusses more applied topics, helping students and professionals bridge the gap to the current technical literature. Although readers are expected to have previousknowledge of one-dimensional signals and systems and optics beyond general physics, this self-contained text reviews the essentials of signal processing, optics, and imaging to make necessary background information readily available. It continues on with coverage of devices, architectures, andprominent applications, providing students with insight into the mathematical and physical principles, a practical understanding of component technology and performance, a grasp of system design and analysis, and a familiarity with architectures for selected but representative applications. Idealfor senior-level undergraduate and first year graduate students in electrical engineering and applied physics as well as practicing engineers and scientists, this accessible text also includes problem exercises, selected hints and solutions, extensive references, and MATLAB-based modeling (availablevia the World Wide Web at It also offers simulation tools to support students exploration of applications and to direct their learning towards the current technical literature. Numerous architectural diagrams are provided to help studentsunderstand and visualize important concepts and their implementation.
