Very good book, with a lots of "short cuts" and good "back of an envelop" estimations However, high degree of subject understanding is required when practicing these short cuts. So be careful! One topics omitted is that of Microscopy (one entry). There are a lots of Rules of Thumb that can help with resolution, magnification, NA or f/#, field of view, depth of field, depth of focus, working distance, etc. Perhaps these can be added to a subsequent edition of the book.
Easy to use and practical for the engineer and physisist invovlved in optics projects. Will save you the embarassment of not knowing the limits of many common optical devices and systems.
Pricey consultants won't like this book! The authors have provided the photonics system design engineer with bothknowledge and wisdom. This is a very rare in technical books,it is clearly a labor of love.
This is a useful and practical work for the practicing EO engineer.
