Book Description

Optomechanical Systems Engineering emphasizes a practical, systems-level overview of optomechanical engineering, bridging the gap between mechanical and optical design. Starting with the fundamentals of imaging, it reviews how optical system concepts flow down into optomechanical requirements on optical fabrication, optical alignment, structural design, mechanics of materials, glass strength, structural vibrations, thermal management, and kinematic mounts. By focusing on fundamental concepts and first-order, back-of-the-envelope estimates of optomechanical system performance, Optomechanical Systems Engineering is accessible to engineers, scientists, and managers who want to quickly master the principles of optomechanical engineering.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“The whole book is written in a very accessible style, and there are plenty of good exercises for the reader. It would be a good resource for engineers and research students entering the field.”  (Optics & Photonics News, 4 September 2015)

 

From the Back Cover
Optomechanical Systems Engineering emphasizes a practical, systems-level overview of optomechanical engineering, bridging the gap between mechanical and optical design.  Starting with the fundamentals of imaging, it reviews how optical system concepts flow down into optomechanical requirements, including chapters on:

  • Optical fundamentals
  • Optical fabrication
  • Optical alignment
  • Structural design of mechanical components
  • Structural design of optical components
  • Structural vibrations
  • Thermal management
  • Kinematic design
  • System design

The focus is on the fundamental principles underlying real-world design problems, as well as the commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components used to solve them. By focusing on fundamental concepts and first-order, back-of-the-envelope estimates of optomechanical system performance, Optomechanical Systems Engineering is accessible to engineers, scientists, and managers who want to quickly master the principles of optomechanical engineering.
