Optics is the branch of physical science that deals with the nature and properties of electromagnetic radiation called light and its interaction with matter. Many optical elements, such as lenses, beamsplitters, and mirrors, are widely used in the military, medical, and industrial fields for many commercial applications. The word optics is derived from Greek and refers to matters of vision. Optics usually describes the behavior of visible, infrared, and ultraviolet light.
