Jose Sasian is Professor of Optical Design at the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona. He has taught a course on lens design for more than twenty years and has published extensively in the field. He has worked as a consultant in lens design for the optics industry, and has been responsible for the design of a variety of successful and novel lens systems.
'This book's strength lies in delivering a vast amount of knowledge on optical lens design in a succinct manner. It comprehensively describes the fundamental optical theory and state-of-the-art of lens design, including aberrations, achromatic doublets, and lens tolerances. This field has strong impacts in several technologies from telescopes to lasers to microscopes. The target audience for this text is graduate students in optical design and photonics engineers, but anyone concerned with imaging industries will profit from reading this book.'
