INSTITUTE OF APPLIED PHYSICS - Inaugural lecture by Prof. Herbert Gross

Inaugural lecture by Prof. Herbert Gross

On April 15, 6:15 - 7:30 pm, Professor Herbert Gross presents his inaugural lecture titled "Design und Analyse optischer Systeme" at the auditorium of the university's main building.

The research group Optical System Design has been established at the Institute of Applied Physics in April 2012 under Professor Gross's leadership. The professorship was founded by the Abbe Foundation, STIFT Thuringia and several companies. Having close cooperational ties with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering and with the optics industry is a declared goal of this research group. Several special topics of optical design as well as system simulation are the current subjects of projects with these companies. Funded projects include larger activities and research on free form surface systems, the modelling of partial coherent imaging, high energy beam guiding systems and the efficient modelling of illumination.

One of Professor Gross's important activities during the past few years has been the publishing of the "Hand­book of Optical Systems". He is the editor and main author of this series of books. Currently, five of six planned volumes are available. In this handbook for practical lens design work, the whole subject of optical system design from basic technical optics, physical opti­cal image modelling, the design and correction of sys­tems, as well as performance evaluation and metrology of components and systems is treated.
