Optical Instruments

  • Matt Young
Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 5)


In this part, we discuss optical instruments that rely, so to speak, on geometrical optics; they are primarily lens devices. Our purpose is not merely to describe the instruments, but to present enough material to permit intelligent use of them.
