A Course in Lens Design (Springer Series in Optical by Chris Velzel

By Chris Velzel

A direction in Lens layout is an guideline within the layout of image-forming optical platforms. It teaches how a passable layout might be received in an easy manner. thought is restricted to a minimal, and used to help the sensible layout paintings. The ebook introduces geometrical optics, optical tools and aberrations. It supplies an outline of the method of lens layout and of the concepts utilized in this procedure. half its content material is dedicated to the layout of 16 kinds of lenses, defined intimately from commencing to finish. This ebook isn't the same as such a lot different books on lens layout since it stresses the significance of the preliminary levels of the layout technique: (paraxial) lay-out and (thin-lens) pre-design. The argument for this modification of accessory is that during those levels a lot details may be acquired concerning the homes of the lens to be designed. this knowledge can be utilized in later stages of the layout. This makes A direction in Lens layout an invaluable self-study ebook and an appropriate foundation for an introductory direction in lens layout. the math almost always used is collage algebra, in a number of sections calculus is utilized. The publication can be utilized by scholars of engineering and technical physics and by means of engineers and scientists.
