Phase-Space Optics: Fundamentals and Applications

by: Markus Testorf, Bryan Hennelly, Jorge Ojeda-Castañeda


Abstract: Definitive coverage of the fundamentals and potential applications of phase-space optics. Phase-space optics is a powerful new tool for understanding and applying the physics of light propagation. Written by pioneers in the field, this book begins by covering the basic properties of joint-signal representations. The book goes on to illustrate how joint-signal representations are well-suited for gaining physical insight and developing novel engineering applications.Phase Space Optics offers essential information on state-of-the-art uses of phase-space methods in optical sciences. Contributors are pioneers in their fields of expertise on the use of joint-signal representations. Application examples utilizing phase-space optics are included.
