Herbert Gross, born in 1955, joined Carl Zeiss in 1982 after finishing his physics degree as specialist for optical design. Since 1995 he has been working as head of the department of optical design, while also teaching as a lecturer in Aalen and Lausanne. The new handbook is an ...intuitive, didactically elegant approach to the subject of optical systems and is not competed by any other work on the market. The selected board of authors, all reputed industrial experts, guarantee the timeliness of the well coordinated, coherent chapters. This first volume of the handbook introduces readers to the basics of geometrical and technical optics. For an understanding of optical systems, it is necessary to be familiar with the paraxial optics, the methods of ray tracing, the notations of geometrical optics and the description of optical systems. Very often the simple geometrical model is not sufficient to understand complex systems, therefore the wave optical model and the effects of light sources and receivers are discussed here too. Special components, such as gratings, prisms or aspherical lenses are described in detail to provide an understanding of modern complex systems. A short introduction into aberrations and the testing of optical systems allow readers to consider and control the quality of optical systems.
