Description

A singular resource covering cutting-edge information and research in the exploding field of optomechanical engineering! Optomechanical Engineering Handbook on CD-ROM

Reviews

t>Good optical design is not in itself adequate for the maximum performance of optical systems. As the mechanical design of the optics and related support structures becomes as important as the optics themselves, optomechanical engineering plays an increasingly important role in the success of new laser systems, space telescopes and instruments, biomedical and optical communication equipment, imaging entertainment systems, and more. Optomechanical Engineering Handbook on CD-ROM comprehensively reflects the increasing importance of optics during the last decade, covering all major aspects - from conceptual design to fabrication and integration of complex optical systems. This practical information is ideal for optical and optomechanical engineers and scientists involved in the design, development, and integration of modern optical systems for commercial, space, and military applications.
