Course review:
1. Mathematical, physical and technical aspects of optical imaging (OSLO - simulation of optical elements). 2. Description of the point imaging in an approach of Fraunhofer diffraction theory. 3. Analysis of image defocusing in a diffraction limited optical system (OSLO - simulation "Perfect Lens"). 4. The optical imaging using appodization (OSLO - central obstruction and Gaussian appodization). 5. The point imaging in optical system with aberrations (OSLO - ray aberrations). 6. Classification and calculation of wave aberrations (OSLO - wave aberrations). 7. Criteria for evaluation of the point imaging. 8. Analysis of optimal focusing using the Strehl criterion (OSLO - optimal focusing for spherical aberration of 3rd and 5th order). 9. The optical imaging in a partially coherent illumination. 10. Self-imaging (Talbot effect) (OSLO, VirtualLab - simulation of the Talbot effect in partially coherent light). 11. Calculation and interpretation of the optical transfer function for coherent light. 12. Optical transfer function for incoherent light, practical use imaging evaluation (OSLO - calculation of OTF for different types of optical systems).
