Description : Covers the fundamental principles behind optomechanicaldesign This book emphasizes a practical, systems-level overview ofoptomechanical engineering, showing throughout how the requirementson the optical system flow down to those on the optomechanicaldesign. The author begins with an overview of optical engineering,including optical fundamentals as well as the fabrication andalignment of optical components such as lenses andmirrors. The concepts of optomechanical engineering are thenapplied to the design of optical systems, including the structuraldesign of mechanical and optical components, structural dynamics,thermal design, and kinematic design. Optomechanical Systems Engineering: Reviews the fundamental concepts of optical engineering as theyapply to optomechanical design Illustrates the fabrication and alignment requirementstypically found in an optical system Examines the elements of structural design from a mechanical,optical, and vibrational viewpoint Develops the thermal management principles of temperature anddistortion control Describes the optomechanical requirements for kinematic andsemi-kinematic mounts Uses examples and case studies to illustrate the concepts andequations presented in the book Provides supplemental materials on a companion website Focusing on fundamental concepts and first-order estimates ofoptomechanical system performance, Optomechanical SystemsEngineering is accessible to engineers, scientists, andmanagers who want to quickly master the principles ofoptomechanical engineering.
