This textbook deals with fourier analysis applications in optics, and in particular with its applications to diffraction, imaging, optical data processing, holography and optical communications. Fourier analysis is a universal tool that has found application within a wide range of areas in physics and engineering and this third edition has been written to help your students understand the complexity of a subject that can be challenging to grasp at times.
Chapters cover foundations of scalar diffraction theory, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction moving onto Wave-Optics Analysis of Coherent Optical Systems and Wavefront Modulation. Joseph Goodman's work in Electrical Engineering has been recognised by a variety of awards and honours, so his text is able to guide students through a comprehensive introduction into Fourier Optics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Introduction to Fourier Optics provided me with my first introduction to this exciting field more than 30 years ago. Over the years it has continued to serve as a teaching resource, a reference book and a source of insights and inspiration for launching new research directions. Its clarity of presentation has set a gold standard for technical books possibly in all fields."
Ravi Athale, DARPA"


"Joe Goodman's wonderful book on Fourier Optics is like a good wine. It keeps getting better and better."
Demetri Psaltis, California Institute of Technology"


"Goodman's Introduction to Fourier Optics explains scalar wave propagation and transfer functions that are essential for understanding the performance of imaging and other optical systems. It also covers several advanced topics. This is the clearest and best-written textbook I have ever read."
James R. Fienup, Robert E. Hopkins Professor of Optics, University of Rochester

"Joe Goodman's wonderful book on Fourier Optics is like a good wine. It keeps getting better and better."
Demetri Psaltis, California Institute of Technology

"Introduction to Fourier Optics by J.W. Goodman is the standard teaching and reference text for Fourier optics and optical information processing. Over the years, applications of these principles have been important in diverse fields such as pattern recognition, image processing, displays, sensors, communications, data storage and imaging systems. Previous editions have included updated material on holography and wavefront modulation. In this most recent edition, a new chapter describes devices and techniques important for optical communications, emphasizing the interplay between time, temporal frequency, space and spatial frequency. Topics such as fiber Bragg gratings, ultrashort pulse shaping, and spectral holography are presented in the same clear and understandable yet detailed manner as the other topics in the text. Once again, the use of Fourier techniques provides particular insight into the principles and applications of these important new fields. This latest edition is an outstanding enhancement of this classic text."
Alexander A. Sawchuk, University of Southern California

"The publication of Introduction to Fourier Optics in 1968 has helped launch the very field of Fourier optics and its adoption into the physics and engineering curriculum. Updated and expanded in 1996, with recent advances in optical information processing and holography fully covered, this influential book has continued to be the best text and the most succinct reference in this area. By using a linear systems approach to describe optical systems, this book has played a major role in attracting engineering students to optics by drawing on analogies with electrical systems. It has also helped expose physics students to the powerful tools of two-dimensional Fourier and linear system theory. Now, the third edition continues this cross-disciplinary tradition by adding a new chapter on Fourier Optics in Optical Communication. A founder of this field and a contributor to many of its significant advances, Joseph W. Goodman has a clear and lucid writing style with an exceptional ability to weave physical concepts seamlessly with the underlying mathematical foundation, and at the same time offer a rich feast of interesting applications."
