OPTI 201R Fall 2010 12-2 5.1 Optical Spaces 4 Optical spaces coincide with physical space—they are not just some "fictitious" mathematical construct. 4 An optical space extends from - 5 &* 65 (just like the physical space around us). 4 Each optical space has its own unique value of refractive index. 4 A ray in an optical space is a straight line. 4 Rays from adjacent optical spaces meet at an optical surface, where they may be reflected , refracted , or undeviated . 4 Rays are "traced" from one optical space to the next optical space. 4 Any optical surface creates two optical spaces—an object space and an image space . 4 (N) optical surfaces create (N+1) optical spaces. # a single mirror creates 2 optical spaces. # a single lens creates 2 optical spaces, etc. # OPTI 201R Fall 2010 12-2 5.1 Optical Spaces 4 Optical spaces coincide with physical space—they are not just some "fictitious" mathematical construct. 4 An optical space extends from - 5 &* 65 (just like the physical space around us). 4 Each optical space has its own unique value of refractive index. 4 A ray in an optical space is a straight line. 4 Rays from adjacent optical spaces meet at an optical surface, where they may be reflected , refracted , or undeviated . 4 Rays are "traced" from one optical space to the next optical space. 4 Any optical surface creates two optical spaces—an object space and an image space . 4 (N) optical surfaces create (N+1) optical spaces. # a single mirror creates 2 optical spaces. # a single lens creates 2 optical spaces, etc. # a plane parallel plate creates 3 optical spaces, etc. OPTI 201R Fall 2010 12-3 4 There are real and virtual segments of each optical space. 4 The real segment of an optical space is the volume between the surfaces defining the entry into, and the exit from, that space. 4 A single object or image exists in each optical space....
