Beschreibung

When Galileo designed the tube of his first telescope, optomechanics was born. Concerned with the shape and position of surfaces in an optical system, optomechanics is a subfield of physics that is arguably as old as optics. However, while universities offer courses on the subject, there is a scarcity in textbook selections that skillfully and properly convey optomechanical fundamentals to aspiring engineers. Complemented by tutorial examples and exercises, this textbook rectifies this issue by providing instructors and departments with a better choice for transmitting to students the basic principles of optomechanics and allowing them to comfortably gain familiarity with the field's content. Practicing optical engineers who engage in self-study and wish to enhance the extent of their knowledge will also find benefit from the vast experience of the authors. The book begins with a discussion of materials based on optomechanical figures of merit and features chapters on windows, prisms, and lenses. The authors also cover topics related to design parameter, mounting small mirrors, metal mirrors with a discussion of infrared applications, and kinematic design. Overall, Fundamentals of Optomechanics outfits students and practitioners with a stellar foundation for exploring the design and support of optical system surfaces under a wide variety of conditions.

  • Provides the fundamentals of optomechanics
  • Presents self-contained, student-friendly prose, written by top scientists in the field
  • Discusses materials, windows, individual lenses and multiple lenses
  • Includes design, mounting, and performance of mirrors
  • Includes homework problems and a solutions manual for adopting professors



Autorentext

Paul Yoder (BS physics, Juniata College, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, 1947, and MS physics, Penn State University, University Park, Pennsylvania, 1950) learned optical design and opto-mechanical engineering at the U.S. Army's Frankford Arsenal (1951-1961). He then applied those skills at Perkin-Elmer Corporation (1961-1986) and served the optical community as a consultant in optical and opto-mechanical engineering (1986-2006). A fellow of the OSA and SPIE, Yoder has authored numerous chapters on opto-mechanics, published more than 60 papers, been awarded 14 U.S. and several foreign patents, and taught more than 75 short courses for SPIE, U.S. government agencies, and industry.

Daniel Vukobratovich is senior principal multidisciplinary engineer at Raytheon Systems, Tucson, Arizona, and adjunct professor at the University of Arizona. He has authored more than 50 papers, taught short courses in opto-mechanics in 12 different countries, and consulted for more than 40 companies. A SPIE fellow, he is a founding member of the opto-mechanics working group. He holds international patents and received an IR-100 award for work on metal matrix composite optical materials. He led development on a series of ultra-lightweight telescopes using new materials, and worked on space telescope systems for STS-95, Mars Observer, Mars Global Surveyor, and FUSE.



Zusammenfassung
This textbook will provide the fundamentals of optomechanics. Starting from the basics, this textbook will lead you through the opto-mechanical design process, discussing materials selection, principles of kinematic design, as well as mounting of windows, individual lenses, and multiple lenses. Techniques for mounting prisms, mirror performance, and design and mounting of mirrors will be included. Written by the two top scientists in the field, this stand-alone, student-friendly textbook has been course-tested and will include homework problems as well as a solutions manual for adopting professors.
