Lens Design, Third Edition,

Front Cover
CRC Press, Mar 29, 2001 - Science - 504 pages
0 Reviews
Featuring over 700 references, equations, tables, and drawings, this highly lauded and best-selling reference emphasizes practical designs of over 30 lens systems, including single-element, two-element achromats, air-spaced triplets, projection lenses, and sophisticated wide-angle and zoom lenses. It comes with software that supplies starting solutions for computer optimization programs lens prescriptions and several shorter programs to compute the refractive index of glasses from a variety of manufacturers, create lens drawings, perform zoom computations, do test glass fitting, and calculate third-order solutions for single lenses, achromats, and triplets.
