Mounting optics in optical instruments, 2d ed. (CD-ROM included)
Yoder, Paul R.
Yoder, who has 57 years of experience in developing optical instruments for military, aerospace, medical and industrial applications, has expanded the second edition of this textbook to include new information in optomechanical engineering technologies and new methods used to provide interfaces for the mechanical parts in optical instruments. The author thoroughly explains the optical properties of lenses, windows, filters, domes, prisms and mirrors used to build these instruments, and explores new technologies involving metallic mirrors, lens centering, elastomeric mounting and mounting stress estimation techniques. Written for optical engineers and technicians, this book also examines the effects of temperature changes on these precision parts.
