Treatise on Practical Light free pdf Excerpt from Treatise on Practical Light Although Optics is one of the oldest of the sciences, it has been pursued mainly for its theoretical interest, and until comparatively recently spectacles, the telescope and the microscope may be said to have been its only outcome of commercial importance. But in the last fifty years the development of photography, the improvement in the microscope following upon the work of Abbe and his successors, the invention of three-colour reproduction, and the introduction of the coal-tar products into textile dyeing, have created problems of great and increasing importance. Those problems have, of course, arisen in the factories, and although manufacturers have frequently appointed distinguished mathematicians and men of science as experts to deal with them, these have - partly perhaps through trade jealousy - in the main worked independently, and only occasionally published any of their results. Meanwhile the treatment of Optics in most of our colleges, so far as it goes beyond the elementary notions, deals with it either as a framework upon which to hang pretty mathematical problems, or else deals with the fascinating, but comparatively non-practical questions of Physical Optics, such as interference, polarisation anomalous dispersion, etc. For these reasons I have found the chapters to which I attach the greatest importance upon the Compound Lens, the Microscope, and upon Colour, the most difficult to write, and I realise that they are still far from complete.
