John Wiley & Sons, May 14, 2012 - Science - 1004 pages

The state-of-the-art full-colored handbook gives a comprehensive introduction to the principles and the practice of calculation, layout, and understanding of optical systems and lens design. Written by reputed industrial experts in the field, this text introduces the user to the basic properties of optical systems, aberration theory, classification and characterization of systems, advanced simulation models, measuring of system quality and manufacturing issues.

In this Volume

Volume 5 topics comprise the methods of measuring the properties of optical systems. The different fundamental techniques, such as propagation measurement and polarimetry, are introduced and discussed in detail and clarity. The presentation allows the reader, after having devised an optical system, to perform the measurements best suited to ascertain that the system fulfills the specific needs and requirements. The following chapters provide a survey on materials, coatings and surfaces of optical components, and combine this with a treatment of light and radiation. The book thus serves as a one-stop reference for metrology of optical systems.

About the author (2012)

Herbert Gross studied physics at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and joined Carl Zeiss in 1982, where has since been working in the department of optical design. His special areas of interest are the development of simulation methods, optical design software and algorithms, the modeling of laser systems and simulation of problems in physical optics, and the tolerance and the measurement of optical systems. Since 1995, he has been head of the central optical design department at Zeiss. In 1995, he received his PhD at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, on the modeling of laser beam propagation in the partial coherent region.
