Description

This text focuses on concepts, physical insight and mathematical simplicity and is intended for students and professionals. Figures and drawings illustrate concepts and enhance readability. Carefully crafted problems at the end of each chapter are designed to reinforce the reader's understanding of theory and applications. A special emphasis is placed on understanding the primary aberrations of simple systems, as a foundation for the design of more complex and high image-quality systems.

Contents

Gaussian optics; radiometry of imaging; optical aberrations; geometrical point-spread function; calculation of primary aberrations - refracting systems, reflecting and catadioptric systems; calculation of primary aberrations - perturbed optical systems.
