Introduction to optics

  1. Jul 16, 2009 #1
    I want to know about a book explaining easily the fundamentals of optics(not geometric).
    I'm not a student who studys physics or optics but grad student studying laser spectroscopy(single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy). Are there any books matching me?
    Thank you.

    I agree with mgb_phys' choice. Hecht is a good introduction to optics. I also own Fundamentals of Photonics by Saleh and Teich but preferred Hecht.
