Unlike the first edition, which was more a collection of lens designs for use in larger projects, the 2nd edition of Modern Lens Design is an optical “how-to.” Delving deep into the mechanics of lens design, optics legend Warren J. Smith reveals time-tested methods for designing top-quality lenses. He deals with lens design software, primarily OSLO, by far the current market leaders, and provides 7 comprehensive worked examples, all new to this edition. With this book in hand, there’s no lens an optical engineer can’t design.
Warren J. Smith is Chief Scientist at Kaiser Electro-Optics as well as an independent consultant. He is the author of three prior books on lens design, including the first edition of this one, and the classics, Modern Optical Engineering and Practical Optical System Layout. He lives in Carlsbad, California.
