Fischer covers just about everything a modern optical designer or optical engineer would care to know.Nice book for readers of all levels of technical sophistication.
This is the exact book i needed. It is an excellent summary of optical principles, and their utilization in optical systems. The design examples are great for illustrating the underlying principles. The level is great for professionals (as a review), or for anyone wanting to learn the principles of optics design. I highly recommend this book, there are lots of references for deeper study. This would be an excellent textbook for a class in optical design.
This is a fantasic reference book for optical design. It is eary to read and follow.
Fischer gives me good advice that I can look up in a book. For example, I found answers about diffraction efficiency in diffractive optics, and a lens design case study about digital camera lenses. I also enjoyed the bloopers section. This information will help me do my job.
