Optical Systems Engineering emphasizes the importance of physical thinking to develop realistic and situation-appropriate optical systems. The book focuses on real-world elements influential to system design, such as feasibility studies, performance modeling, requirements analysis and flow-down, allocation of error budgets, sub-system and component specifications, interfaces between sub-systems, and the availability of electronics components. Optical Systems Engineering Features an easy-to-understand, real-world example of optical phenomena at the beginning of each chapter Includes numerous diagrams and photo images that allow you to visualize how each component works and why Helps you to develop physical thinking and learn to work in a real-world design environment Focuses on learning through experience rather than memorization About the Author Keith J.
