Description:

Optics Using MATLAB® provides a functional overview of the development of MATLAB code that can be used to enhance and increase one’s understanding of optics though the use of visualization tools. The book ties a variety of optical topics to MATLAB programming activities and can act as a supplement to other textbooks or can stand alone. Part I focuses on a wide range of basic programming fundamentals using MATLAB and includes such topics as curve fitting, image processing, and file storage. Part II provides a review of selected topics in optics and demonstrates how these can be explored using MATLAB scripts. Part III discusses how to use MATLAB to improve the usability of custom programs through graphical user interfaces and incorporation of other programming languages. Those who need flexibility and special calculations in their optical design or optical engineering work will find value in the book’s explanations and examples of user-programmable software.

Scientists and engineers eventually find themselves in the position where they need to perform long or repetitive calculations in order to solve a problem. There are lots of great programming languages available for such purposes, and the task at hand determines which language will provide the best solution in the time available. Being able to work with several computational languages and programs is a valuable skill, but being able to perform rapid engineering calculations that provide visualization or graphical representations of the results is a real plus in any computational exercise.
