Geometrical and Instrumental Optics II
John E. Greivenkamp
College of Optical Sciences, Rm. 741
Goal: This course will provide the student with a fundamental understanding of optical system design and instrumentation. The course builds upon the foundations of geometrical optics that were presented in OPTI-201R to discuss a variety of elementary optical systems. Other topics include chromatic effects, camera systems and illumination optics. A special emphasis is placed on the practical aspects of the design of optical systems.
Instructor Notes: Required and can be downloaded below. Some of the Notes carry over from OPTI-201R.
