Course No.:012008

Course Category: major course of subject


PrerequisitesApplied optics, higher mathematics, linear algebra, and so on.


The basic theory and design methods of optical design are systematically discussed in "optical design". The design content of typical optical system with universal significance is introduced in order to clarify the common problems in optical design, and some examples of scientific research design are listed for reference.

Optical design can be used by teachers and students of measurement and control technology and instrument and Optoelectronic Information Engineering in higher engineering colleges, and also for engineers and technicians engaged in the research, design, manufacture and system development of optical and optoelectronic instruments.
