Optical Imaging and Aberrations

Author: Virendra N. Mahajan
Publisher: Society of Photo Optical
ISBN: 081949111X
Release Date: 2013-08
Genre: Science

This book discusses the characteristics of a diffraction image of an incoherent or a coherent object formed by an aberrated imaging system. Numerical results in aberrated imaging have been emphasized to maximize the practical use of the material. This new, second printing includes a number of updates and corrections to the first printing. Beginning with a description of the diffraction theory of image formation, the book describes both aberration-free and aberrated imaging by optical systems with circular, annular, or Gaussian pupils. As in part I, the primary aberrations are emphasized. Their effects on Strehl, Hopkins, and Struve ratios are discussed in detail. The balanced aberrations are identified with Zernike polynomials appropriate for each type of system. Imaging in the presence of random aberrations is also discussed that includes the effects of image motion and propagation through atmospheric turbulence. Each chapter ends with a set of practical problems.

Aberration Theory Made Simple

Author: Virendra N. Mahajan
Publisher: SPIE Press
ISBN: 0819405361
Release Date: 1991-01-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book provides a clear, concise, and consistent exposition of what aberrations are, how they arise in optical imaging systems, and how they affect the quality of images formed by them. The emphasis of the book is on physical insight, problem solving, and numerical results, and the text is intended for engineers and scientists who have a need and a desire for a deeper and better understanding of aberrations and their role in optical imaging and wave propagation. Some knowledge of Gaussian optics and an appreciation for aberrations would be useful but is not required.

Advanced Optical Imaging Theory

Genre: Technology & Engineering

Optical microscopy and associated technologies have advanced rapidly along with laser technology. These techniques have stimulated further development of the optical imaging theory, including 3-dimensional microscopy imaging theory, the theory of imaging with ultrashort pulsed beam illumination and the aberration theory for high numerical-aperture objectives. This book introduces these new theories in modern optical microscopy, providing comparisons with classical imaging as appropriate.

Release Date: 2018-04-10
Genre: Science

This textbook is devoted to the fundamentals of optical system design and analysis. It is part of series on applied optics covering the math and theory of the Optical phenomena. This book starts wilh short overview of the wave optics and transitions to the theory of geometric optics and its limitations. It is self-contained and only basics of Fourier optics are covered that relate to applications and design of optical and imaging systems. The third chapter covers concepts of simple imaging systems. The last fourth chapter, discusses the theory of third order aberrations. The text is more appropriate for researchers, grad students, undergrad students, with interests in the realm of Optics. The series is written in language that is accessible for large audience, however, calculus is highly recommended as it goes in depth discussing the topics. It does not cover the use of specific raytracing software for optimization. Last update: 8 January 2019 Length: 216 pages 83 figures in color
