Optics

Carlos Polanco

Abstract

This scientific discipline focuses on the study of the behavior and properties of light such as the energy of a waveform or an electromagnetic wave. The concept of light is geometrically represented as a set of rays travelling in straight line, bending when it passes through or reflects from a surface. The study of the reflection and refraction of rays in different forms is called Optics [Cornejo-Rodríguez and Urcid-Serrano, 2005] p. 8.
