! Marc Levoy Lens quality varies ! Why is this toy so expensive? EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM $1700 ! Why is it better than this toy? EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM $550 ! Why is it so complicated? 5 (Canon)

! Marc Levoy Physical versus geometrical optics ! light can be modeled as traveling waves ! the perpendiculars to these waves can be drawn as rays ! diffraction causes these rays to bend, e.g. at a slit ! geometrical optics assumes ! ! 0 no diffraction in free space, rays are straight (a.k.a. rectilinear propagation) 8 (Hecht)
Background image of page 8
! Marc Levoy Physical versus geometrical optics (contents of whiteboard) ! in geometrical optics, we assume that rays do not bend as they pass through a narrow slit ! this assumption is valid if the slit is much larger than the wavelength ! physical optics is a.k.a. wave optics 9

! Marc Levoy Snell’s law of refraction ! as waves change speed at an interface, they also change direction ! index of refraction n is deFned as the ratio between the speed of light in a vaccum / speed in some medium 10 (Hecht) x i x t = sin ! i sin t = n t n i later we will use n sin i = n’ sin i’ (for indices n and n’ and i and i’ in radians) Sudden jump to n sin i notation clarified on 5/1/10.

! Marc Levoy Typical refractive indices ( n ) ! air = 1.0 ! water = 1.33 ! glass = 1.5 - 1.8 ! when transiting from air to glass, light bends towards the normal ! when transiting from glass to air, light bends away from the normal ! light striking a surface perpendicularly does not bend 11 (Hecht) mirage due to changes in the index of refraction of air with temperature

! Marc Levoy Q. What shape should an interface be to make parallel rays converge to a point? A. a hyperbola ! so lenses should be hyperbolic! 12 (Hecht)
Background image of page 12
! Marc Levoy Spherical lenses ! two roughly ftting curved surFaces ground together will eventually become spherical ! spheres don’t bring parallel rays to a point this is called spherical aberration nearly axial rays (paraxial rays) behave best 13 (Hecht) (wikipedia)

! Marc Levoy Examples of spherical aberration 14 (gtmerideth) (Canon) As I mentioned in class, a spherically aberrant image can be thought of as a sharp image (formed by the central rays) + a hazy image (formed by the marginal rays). The look is quite different than a misfocused image, where nothing is sharp. Some people compare it to photographing through a silk stocking.
