9780071438308: Modern Lens Design (McGraw-Hill Professional Engineering)

Unlike the first edition, which was more a collection of lens designs for use in larger projects, the 2nd edition of Modern Lens Design is an optical “how-to.” Delving deep into the mechanics of lens design, optics legend Warren J. Smith reveals time-tested methods for designing top-quality lenses. He deals with lens design software, primarily OSLO, by far the current market leaders, and provides 7 comprehensive worked examples, all new to this edition. With this book in hand, there’s no lens an optical engineer can’t design.

From the Back Cover:

"This authoritative work is truly a rare find ... Smith's book is clearly written and exceedingly well organized ... When read from start to finish, the book makes it clear how the simple techniques demonstrated in the early chapters are developed and applied to more complex lens design forms."
--Laser Focus, on the previous edition

"An authoritative collection of lens design forms in a clear, readable format, Modern Lens Design is well worth acquiring by any student of the art of lens design.
-- Optical Engineering, on the previous edition
