: Law of Refraction by F

Derive the law of refraction by the Fermat principle of the smallest optical path length between two
points above and below a plane interface.
Exercise 14

Collimation

section respectively.
The numerical apertures are NA

Furthermore
the beam shows an intrinsic ast
igmatism
, the source point of the
fast axis lies on the chip
surface, the source point of the slow axis lies in the bulk.
Calculate the focallength of a lens, which collimates the x

z

section onto a diameter of 5 mm. It is
assumed, that the system fulfille
s the sine condition. Draw the principle ray path in both sections for
this case. Discuss some possible options for getting a collimation with small spherical aberration.
What kind of component can be used to collimate the beam after the first lens in the
y

z section too ?
Draw a sketch of the necessary layout. How can the system be extended for getting in addition a
circular cross section ?
Exercise 17
: Design of a Telephoto System
If a system combines a positive and a negative lens in a distance t,
it is possible to move the principal
plane in front of the system. The focal length f of the system is then larger than the overall size
L
. The
so called telephoto factor is the ratio between overall length of the system (first lens until image plane)
to t
he focal length
f

.
Calculate the individual focal lengths of both lenses as a function of given f, k and distance t between
the two lenses.

The invariant is important for the layout of endoscopic systems. An endoscopic system may have a
field angle of 40° in water with refractive index n = 1.34 and a pupil diameter of D
p
= 0.5 mm. Behind
the front objective, relay systems ar
e located in an endoscope with length L = 200 mm and field
lenses of 4 mm diameter. Calculate the aperture angle in the intermediate images of the relay
systems. If one relay systems are ideally symmetric and consists of thin objective lenses and two thin
plane

convex field lenses, how many relay modules are necessary to get the total length L ?
Calculate the focal length of the field lens components.
