Rudolf Kingslake is regarded as the father of lens design; his book, not revised since its publication in 1978, is viewed as a classic in the field. Naturally, the field has developed considerably since the book was published. The most obvious change is the availability of powerful lens design software packages, which all lens designers use. However, a lens designer still needs to understand the fundamentals of lens design, otherwise a design could be faulty, costly to develop and difficult to manufacture. The market for the book has increased considerably since publication, as optical systems are being implemented in a wide variety of applications, including cameras in cellular phones, digital cameras, medical instruments, display systems, infrared sensors, web cams, money scanners, etc. The advent of software packages for lens design has meant there are a lot more engineers carrying out design than when the book was first published. This book provides the skills and knowledge to move into the exciting world of contemporary lens design and develop the practical lenses needed for the great variety of 21st-century applications. In keeping with market trends, this book has been thoroughly updated and includes two new chapters on the effective use of lens design software packages.
The Work of the Lens Designer; Ray Tracing; Paraxial Rays and First-Order Optics; Introduction to Aberration Theory; Axial Chromatic Aberrations; Spherical Aberrations; Design of a Spherically Corrected Achromat; Oblique Pencils; Coma and the Sine Condition; Design of Aplanatic Objectives; The Oblique Aberrations; Lens in which Stop position is a Degree of Freedom; Symmetrical Double Anastigmats with Fixed Stop; Unsymmetrical Photographic Objectives; Mirror and Catadioptric Systems; Eyepiece Design; Computer-Aided Lens Design
Thoroughly revised and expanded to reflect the substantial changes in the field since its publication in 1978Strong emphasis on how to effectively use software design packages, indispensable to today's lens designer
Many new lens design problems and examples - ranging from simple lenses to complex zoom lenses and mirror systems - give insight for both the newcomer and specialist in the field
Rudolf Kingslake is regarded as the American father of lens design; his book, not revised since its publication in 1978, is viewed as a classic in the field. Naturally, the area has developed considerably since the book was published, the most obvious changes being the availability of powerful lens design software packages, theoretical advances, and new surface fabrication technologies.

This book provides the skills and knowledge to move into the exciting world of contemporary lens design and develop practical lenses needed for the great variety of 21 st -century applications. Continuing to focus on fundamental methods and procedures of lens design, this revision by R. Barry Johnson of a classic modernizes symbology and nomenclature, improves conceptual clarity, broadens the study of aberrations, enhances discussion of multi-mirror systems, adds tilted and decentered systems with eccentric pupils, explores use of aberrations in the optimization process, enlarges field flattener concepts, expands discussion of image analysis, includes many new exemplary examples to illustrate concepts, and much more.

Optical engineers working in lens design will find this book an invaluable guide to lens design in traditional and emerging areas of application; it is also suited to advanced undergraduate or graduate course in lens design principles and as a self-learning tutorial and reference for the practitioner.

Rudolf Kingslake (1903-2003) was a founding faculty member of the Institute of Optics at The University of Rochester (1929) and remained teaching until 1983. Concurrently, in 1937 he became head of the lens design department at Eastman Kodak until his retirement in 1969. Dr. Kingslake published numerous papers, books, and was awarded many patents. He was a Fellow of SPIE and OSA, and an OSA President (1947-48). He was awarded the Progress Medal from SMPTE (1978), the Frederic Ives Medal (1973), and the Gold Medal of SPIE (1980).

R. Barry Johnson has been involved for over 40 years in lens design, optical systems design, and electro-optical systems engineering. He has been a faculty member at three academic institutions engaged in optics education and research, co-founder of the Center for Applied Optics at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, employed by a number of companies, and provided consulting services. Dr. Johnson is an SPIE Fellow and Life Member, OSA Fellow, and an SPIE President (1987). He published numerous papers and has been awarded many patents. Dr. Johnson was founder and Chairman of the SPIE Lens Design Working Group (1988-2002), is an active Program Committee member of the International Optical Design Conference, and perennial co-chair of the annual SPIE Current Developments in Lens Design and Optical Engineering Conference.
