cture 26- cture 26- 3 Geometric Optics vs Wave Optics Geometric optics is a limit of the general optics where wave effects such as interference and diffraction are negligible. Geometric optics applies when objects and apertures involved are much larger than the wavelength of light. In geometric optics, the propagation of light can be analyzed using rays alone. Wave optics (sometimes also called physical optics ) - wave effects play important roles. Wave optics applies when objects and apertures are comparable to or smaller than the wavelength of light. In wave optics, we must use the concepts relevant to waves such as phases, coherence, and interference .
