9780070592544: Practical Optical System Layout: And Use of Stock Lenses (McGraw-Hill Optical and Electro-optical Engineering Series)

A complete optical systems design course for general optical engineers! The "first cut" design of an optical system -- anything from a telescope to a complicated VR helmet -- is usually not done by a specialist but by a more general optical engineer. This book details the basic design principles and techniques for doing so in a clear, concise, "low-math" way that such generalists will readily understand -- and appreciate. Practical, step-by-step coverage includes succinct equations, simple diagrams, and clear explanations. The chapter on selecting stock lens (to test a concept or to prove out a possible finished device) should be especially useful.

From the Back Cover:

A complete optical systems design course for general optical engineers! Practical optical system layout. The ``first cut'' design of an optical system--anything from a telescope to a complicated VR helmet--is usually not done by a specialist but by a more general optical engineer. This book, drawn from the author's extensive seminar experience, details such basic design techniques in a clear, concise, ``low-math'' way that is sure to be readily accessible to anyone with a working knowledge of optics. It discusses the characteristics of a wide range of optical components, how to determine the type of components to be used, and how to arrange these components so that the system measures up to its performance objectives. Practical, step-by-step coverage includes succinct equations, simple diagrams, and clear explanations. For less experienced designers, the chapter on utilizing stock lenses (to test a concept or to prove out a possible finished device) should be especially useful.

About the Author:

Warren J. Smith (Vista, CA), a chief scientist at Kaiser Electro-Optics and an independent consultant, is one of the most widely known writers and educators in the field of optical design. He is the author of Modern Optical Engineering and Modern Lens Design.
