Category: Price: $8.77 (as of 02/10/2022 17:44 PST- Details)


This textbook is devoted to the fundamentals of optical system design and analysis. It is part of series on applied optics covering the math and theory of the Optical phenomena.The book starts with short overview of the wave optics and transitions to the theory of geometrical optics and its limitations. Only basic Fourier optics is covered that relate to the applications and design of optical and imaging systems. The third chapter covers concepts of simple imaging systems. The last fourth chapter discusses the theory of third order aberrations. The content is presented in language that is accessible for large audience, however, calculus is highly recommended as it goes in depth discussing the topics. The text is more appropriate for researchers, grad students, undergrad students, with interests in the realm of Optics.The book does not cover the use of specific raytracing software for optimization.
