Title: Practical Computer-Aided Lens Design
Author(s): Gregory Hallock Smith
Other Info: 6.0" by 9.0", 524 pages, Hardbound, 2.1 lb item wt.

The introduction of the computer revolutionized the way lenses (optical systems) are designed and evaluated. Gone is the drudgery of the past. Gone are the arcane methods. Today the process of designing lenses is more direct, much faster, and infinitely easier.

The recent advent of the personal computer and affordable optical design software has extended this revolution. These latest advances allow more people to design lenses than ever before.

Practical Computer-Aided Lens Design tells how to design and evaluate lenses using computers. The approach is general and fundamental, and is not limited to one specific software program. Thus, this book should be useful for many years to come.

If you are interested in lenses, lens design can also be an exciting and creative experience, and an attempt has been made to convey this feeling to the reader.

Three groups of readers are intended:
  • College students studying optics
  • Non-optical scientists and engineers who wish to design optics using programs like ZEMAX® , OSLO® , and CODE V® .
  • Optical enthusiasts and hobbyists, such as amateur telescope makers.

Features in this book:
  • Optical design concepts and techniques are explained
  • Many design examples are worked and the results discussed
  • The latest computer-aided methods are used
  • A practical and intuitive approach is emphasized
  • Hardbound, 6 by 9 inches, 524 pages
