Mode:

Classroom

Short description:

The aim of the lecture is to present key concepts of image formation by simple optical elements and basics of optical instruments, in terms of geometrical optics.

Full description:

The lecture "Geometrical and instrumental optics" will provide the students with basic concepts and laws of optics as well as with optical instruments. It is intended for students of the first year of BSc studies "Applications of physics in biology and medicine" (specialization "Ocular optics") and "European Studies on Ophthalmic Optics and Optometry". To understand the ideas shown in the lecture knowledge of mathematics and physics at the secondary school level is sufficient. Due to limited program of optics in secondary school courses, the main task is to understand basic phenomena in image formation process in optical systems.

The lecture is accompanied by obligatory calculation exercises.

Program:

1. Key concepts and laws of geometrical optics..

2. Elements and set-ups with flat refraction surfaces.

3. Spherical and aspherical refraction surfaces.

4. Paraxial approximation in optical systems.

5. Systems of lenses and limitations of ray beams.

6. Aberrations in optical systems.

7. Construction and functions of optical instruments.
