Book Description:

This is a comprehensive, one stop source for optical design, a discipline currently being transformed by new applications ranging from digital imaging, telecommunications, and machine vision. Based on a course developed and taught over the past decade, the book avoides mathematica derivation in favor of a graphics-oriented approach, making the book easy to understand.

From the Back Cover:

“This is a really neat book. The authors have managed a most difficult task—writing a book, which is both introductory and authoritatively wide-ranging. The style and treatment are friendly, relaxed, and easy to take, and yet the content covers the field of optical system design thoroughly. The explanations tend to be based on easy-to-understand specific examples, minimizing theory while emphasizing the practical. Its subtitles, A Primer, accurately indicated its intended audience, but since the book is obviously drawn from the authors’ extensive practical experience, it’s not too surprising to find tidbits, which are of value to the more experienced optiker. It is a pleasure to be able to heartily recommend this valuable addition to the literature of optical engineering. —Warren Smith Move through any project more quickly, expertly, and painlessly. Optical System Design Primer is packed with optical system design techniques in an easy-to-use format. Whether you're a beginner or someone who's designed optical systems for years, this book can help you do it better and faster. Instead of complex, unnecessary mathematical derivations, the Primer gives you more than 400 detailed diagrams, illustrating every major procedure in optical design. What's more, you get thoroughly up-to-date coverage. Inside you'll find help with computer aided optic design techniques, diffractive optics, and the latest applications, including digital imaging, telecommunications, and machine vision. Written by renowned optical system designers Robert E. Fischer and Biljana Tadic-Galeb, and honed over 20 years in an SPIE professional course taught by Mr. Fischer, Optical System Design Primer brings you: *Hundreds of examples that break techniques down into understandable steps *A graphics-oriented approach that illustrates techniques with 400+ diagrams *CAD use explained through sample problems *Case studies of today's applications in telecommunications, sensors, lasers, computing, and more *Techniques for getting rid of geometrical aberrations *Testing, tolerancing, and manufacturing guidance *Pointers on using off-the-shelf optics *Lessons learned from bloopers and blunders *Both basic and advanced methods *All the guidance you need to get and stay on top of any job Quite simply, Optical System Design Primer is the sourcebook the optical design community has been waiting for. FEATURES *400 diagrams *CAD techniques *Third-millennium applications *Expert authorship *Minimal math Specifications Aberrations Infrared optical systems Image quality Optical path difference First-order relationships Stops and pupils First order principles Aspheric surfaces Design forms Performance Laser-based systems Ultraviolet systems Industrial applications Optical testing Tolerancing Optical manufacturing Diffraction Applications Commercial applications Computer-aided optical design Evaluation
