Optics

Lenses
Curvature of Wavefronts
Light can be viewed as beams travelling between points. However, from most light sources, the light radiates
outwards as a series of wavefronts. Light from a light source is bent - wavefronts of light have a property known as
curvature.
As light travels further…

The Lens Equation
Overall, then, the formula relating the curvature of the wavefronts
leaving a lens to the curvature of the wavefronts entering it is:




The lens equation, applied to a single pixel.




where v is the distance between the lens and the in-focus image formed, u is…
