Geometric and Opthalmic Optics
- Grading of the course requires grading of the following courses:
- Physics (17PBOFYZ)
- Jiří Novák (guarantor)
- Petr Písařík, Jiří Novák (guarantor)
- Department of Natural Sciences
This course focuses on basics of geometrical optics and its applications in the field of optical design of simple optical elements and systems (lenses, mirrors, prisms, telescopes, etc.). The second part of the course deals with a description and analysis of a human eye as an optical imaging system. The design and analysis of various types of spectacle lenses for correction of refraction errors is presented.
Credit condition - 75% presence, successful passing the mid-term and final test.
