OPTI617 Advanced Optical Design

OPTI617 Advanced Optical Design
This course starts with the fundamental optical design methods and then discusses the designs of
commonly used optical systems. For each system, the course will cover the principles, design methods,
and design examples.
In addition to homework and projects, students will design one complete optical system.
