These Optical Resource Letters are patterned after the well-established Resource Letters published in the American Journal of Physics and distributed by the American Association of Physics Teachers. The purpose is to provide, in an important field of optics, briefly annotated references which should be of value to teachers, researchers, engineers and technicians interested in the subject area. No claim is made for completeness or exhaustiveness of coverage; rather, it is hoped that the references quoted will be helpful in themselves, and will be representative, or at least suggestive, of the broad literature on this subject.

The present Optical Resource Letter, OR-2, and that published last month, OC-1 on Colorimetry, were prepared under the direction of the OSA Ad Hoc Committee on Resource Letters: K. M. Baird, H. E. Breed, M. A. Jeppesen, J. M. Stone, and S. S. Ballard (Chairman).

Notation: The letter E following an item number indicates that the reference is on a more-or-less elementary level; the letter A indicates an advanced level.

Additional copies are available from the Executive Office of the Optical Society of America, 2100 Pennsylvania Avenue, N. W., Washington, D. C. 20037. Request Optical Resource Letter OR-2, and please enclose a stamped, return-addressed envelope.
