Topics that deal with optics as a whole, including color, ray tracing and luminescence


  • Color - the visual perception by humans that derives from different spectrums of light
  • Optical distortion - the deviation from rectilinear projection in light transmission
  • Optical fiber applications - the uses of fiber optics
  • Optical harmonic generation - the process by which photons interacting with a nonlinear material are effectively combined to form new photons with twice as much energy
  • Optical losses - light which could have generated power or a signal but is dissipated or distorted
