1010606System Limits: Performance and Configuration
<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> It is the intent of this chapter to briefly outline some limits to which all optical systems must conform. These are: (1) limits of performance or resolution, (2) limits on throughput, and (3) limits on the relationships between beam angles and sizes. In the initial stages of system layout it is essential that these limits be known and harmonized with what is expected of the optical system. Occasionally this first step s…
