Top 10 Optics Equations

Written by Scott Sparrold

I believe all optical engineers should memorize these very simple equations.

That might be a strong statement. All Lens designers should memorize these equations.





Around 2001, a good friend, Dave Bajorins, asked for my top ten optics equations.

I put a list together and I thought I would share them here.
There are actually much more than 10 equations.
The ones to memorize have been highlighted with a box.
