Principles of Biophotonics, Volume 3

It is quite unfortunate to review a book written by a true leader in the optical and biomedical engineering communities who passed away in June 2022. But it represents also a great opportunity to remember the pioneering contributions of Gabriel Popescu to the fields of quantitative phase imaging and spectroscopy.

The timely revised edition of this book describes in-depth different aspects of the basic concepts of light propagation in linear, homogenous, dispersionless and isotropic media. This lecture-based book is pleasant and contains careful discussions of a large number of topics dealing with the multifaceted aspects of basic optics principles.

A set of exercises covers a wide range of difficulty. The target audience includes undergraduate students of engineering and science and optical engineers.

Review by Christian Brosseau, Optica Fellow and professor of physics, Université de Bretagne Occidentale, Brest, France.
