If you work in optics you quickly learn that you can either fight speckle to try to get rid of it or you can take advantage of speckle for many applications. Speckle Phenomena in Optics tells it all. It gives a detailed description of speckle, explains techniques for suppressing speckle, and it gives several applications of speckle in imaging and metrology. Joseph W. Goodman has provided a clearly written technical book that will become a classic in its field. A fascinating consequence of optical coherence, speckle has become one of the major optical phenomena. Most often, but not necessarily always, associated with laser illumination, it is relevant for the basic understanding of scattering phenomena and for application to high technology alike, from the Brownian motion to integrated circuit lithography and to the imaging of the sky by large telescopes. This book broadly encompasses the conceptual and mathematical tools relevant for analyzing speckle phenomena together with all major applications. Its readers will benefit from J. W. Goodman?s fine understanding of physics and his famous skills as a teacher. Contents: Origins and Manifestations of Speckle ? Random Phasor Sums ? First-Order Statistical Properties ?
