About the Author:

Herbert Gross was born in 1955. He studied Physics at the University of Stuttgart and joined Carl Zeiss in 1982. Since then he has been working in the department of optical design. His special areas of interest are the development of simulation methods, optical design software and algorithms, the modelling of laser systems and the simulation of problems in physical optics, and the tolerancing and measurement of optical systems. Since 1995, he has been heading the central optical design department at Zeiss. Dr. Gross served as a lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences at Aalen and at the University of Lausanne, and gave seminars for the Photonics Net of Baden Württemberg as well as several internal company courses. In 1995, he received his PhD from the University of Stuttgart for a work on the modelling of laser beam propagation in the partial coherent region. He has published several papers and has given many talks at conferences.

Book Description Wiley VCH Verlag Gmbh Jan 2005, 2005. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - 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. 826 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783527403776
