This text presents several new thin-film design methods that can produce multiple stopbands as well as passbands. It is written for thin-film designers and students with advanced knowledge of multilayer, optical thin-film coatings. The text focuses on coatings that have high reflectance performance requirements in more than one spectral wavelength band or region.Contents - Preface - Definitions - Introduction - Sinusoidal Thickness Modulated Designs - Discrete Apodization of TMDs - Other Complex TMDs - Quarter-Wave Stack Transformation Method - Appendix A: Some useful equations for discrete-la

This book addresses some of the issues in visual optics with a functional analysis of ocular aberrations, especially for the purpose of vision correction. The basis is the analytical representation of ocular aberrations with a set of orthonormal polynomials, such as Zernike polynomials or the Fourier series. Although the aim of this book is the application of wavefront optics to laser vision correction, most of the theories discussed are equally applicable to other methods of vision correction, such as contact lenses and intraocular lenses.Contents - Preface - Symbols, Notations, and Abbrevia

The material in this Field Guide derives from the treatment of geometrical optics that has evolved from both the undergraduate and graduate programs at the Optical Sciences Center at the University of Arizona. The development is both rigorous and complete, and it features a consistent notation and sign convention. This volume covers Gaussian imagery, paraxial optics, first-order optical system design, system examples, illumination, chromatic effects, and an introduction to aberrations. The appendices provide supplemental material on radiometry and photometry, the human eye, and several other t

Entirely updated to cover the latest technology, this Second Edition gives optical designers and optomechanical engineers a thorough understanding of the principal ways in which optical components--lenses, windows, filters, shells, domes, prisms, and mirrors of all sizes--are mounted in optical instruments. Along with new information on tolerancing, sealing considerations, elastomeric mountings, alignment, stress estimation, and temperature control, two new chapters address the mounting of metallic mirrors and the alignment of reflective and catadioptric systems. The updated accompanying CD-RO
