Design of Optical Systems with Extended Depth of Field: An Educational Approach to Wavefront Coding Techniques
Ferran, C.; Bosch, S.; Carnicer, A.
IEEE Transactions on Education, v55 n2 p271-278 May 2012
A practical activity designed to introduce wavefront coding techniques as a method to extend the depth of field in optical systems is presented. The activity is suitable for advanced undergraduate students since it combines different topics in optical engineering such as optical system design, aberration theory, Fourier optics, and digital image processing. This paper provides the theoretical background and technical information for performing the experiment. The proposed activity requires students able to develop a wide range of skills since they are expected to deal with optical components, including spatial light modulators, and develop scripts to perform some calculations. (Contains 5 footnotes, 5 tables, and 13 figures.)
