Content

This lecture gives an introduction into optical system’s design. The focus is on the system concept: design for manufacture, reliability in operation, as well as interactions between optical and non-optical system components are considered. Practical aspects of optical systems design like e.g. the consideration of design rules to ensure
manufacturability, tolerancing of the optical system to ensure a reliable operation, and the coupling of optical and mechanical simulation tools will also be presented. Application of the acquired techniques will be deepened with the help of three case studies.

Content:

  • Introduction
  • Modeling, simulation, and systems design
  • Basics of optics
  • Properties of optical materials
