Introduction to light and optics

Magued Iskander, Samer Sadek

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

An introduction to light and optics is presented in this chapter, with emphasis on light properties that are related to transparent soil modeling. Simple theories which are required for understanding the light behavior in transparent synthetic soils, including propagation of light, refraction, reflection, and speckle effects are presented.
