Non-Euclidean transformations has been recently proposed to produce a link between three-dimensional homogeneous surfaces and two-dimensional dielectric lenses. Therefore, the propagation in a geometrical surface has the same response of an equivalent refractive index distribution.

The control system can be implemented on a dedicated platform (e.g., field programmable ...

  • Biomedical EM, Optics, and Ultrasound

    This chapter discusses some key formulations in biomedical electromagnetics (EM). Extensive work has been reported on static through terahertz coupling to bodies near fields, cell phones, specific absorption rate (SAR), narrow and UWB pulse in biological systems. The chapter considers specific absorption rate (SAR) and heat diffusion in tissues. It describes the diffusion approximation of the radiative transfer theory. In the diffusion approximation, the specific intensity has a broad angular spectrum and therefore the diffused wave cannot be focused into a small volume. There is a way to focus the diffused wave, but the focusing requires constructive interference near the focal point and destructive interference elsewhere. The chapter also discusses fundamentals of ultrasound scattering and imaging of tissues and blood. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was introduced to obtain noninvasive images of biological images of biological tissues with resolutions of 1‐15 μm.

  • Geometrical Optics

    Geometrical Optics uses the concept of rays, which have direction and position but no phase information, to model the way light travels through space or an optical system. This chapter focuses on imaging systems, which cover a broad class of engineering applications. It assumes that an object is viewed as a collection of many pinpoint sources of light and that some of them will be captured by the imaging system. Those captured ray sources will be traced through an optical system to determine what image will be formed. This technique is useful for designing lenses, developing systems of lenses for use in microscopes, telescopes, cameras, and other devices. The chapter talks about the cardinal points of an optical system, which are the first and second focal points, principal points, and nodal points. It describes the various stops and apertures that characterize the imaging performance of an optical system.
