This comprehensive and self-contained text presents the
fundamentals of optical imaging from the viewpoint of both ray and
wave optics, within a single volume. Comprising three distinct
parts, it opens with an introduction to electromagnetic theory,
including electromagnetic diffraction problems and how they can be
solved with the aid of standard numerical methods such as RCWA or
FDTD. The second part is devoted to the basic theory of geometrical
optics and the study of optical aberrations inherent in imaging
systems, including large-scale telescopes and high-resolution
projection lenses. A detailed overview of state-of-the-art optical
system design provides readers with the necessary tools to
successfully use commercial optical design software. The final part
explores diffraction theory and concludes with vectorial wave
propagation, image formation and image detection in high-aperture
imaging systems. The wide-ranging perspective of this important
book provides researchers and professionals with a comprehensive
and rigorous treatise on the theoretical and applied aspects of
