What is optics problem: Definition and 58 Discussions
In physics, physical optics, or wave optics, is the branch of optics that studies interference, diffraction, polarization, and other phenomena for which the ray approximation of geometric optics is not valid. This usage tends not to include effects such as quantum noise in optical communication, which is studied in the sub-branch of coherence theory.
Hi, i would like to design a optics in zemax for collimation of guassian beam. The collimation is to be done for the beam for off axis rays. Attached the foto of what i would like to achieve.
Hello esteemed members,
I hope this message will find you well,
I have encountered this problem in Serway and Jewitt 9e.
My problem is only with parts (d) and (e).
I tried to solve the problem in two ways, one is based on intuition, and the second is based on the equations, but the two method...
Hi. I’m trying to solve an optics problem and really struggling. The problem is best described as follows…
Imagine you have a section of a wall that you want to look like a window on a spaceship. So you want to look at this “window” and see through it some “stars” (i.e. pinpoints of light) that...
I have recently started with geometric optics and I do not quite understand what this problem asks of me. According to the statement, the focal point of the lens would be -25.5cm, right? That is, it is only a problem of concepts where it is not necessary to take into account the radii of the...
The actual problem can be found as #2 on this link: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mechanical-engineering/2-71-optics-spring-2009/assignments/MIT2_71S09_ups1.pdf

I know how to solve the problem but the only thing that's bothering me is what is A?
According to me A is should be 2F ie 2 times the focal length distance. I thought of it like this:
1. First there will be an image formed due to the lens.
2. The image will be formed below the lens but the...
Im thinking that this is a telescope, but I am having a lot of trouble answering this question.
If the plane waves arrive at different angles, wouldn't the image be distorted?Would the lenses possibly be spherical because of this?
