28 July 1997 Advanced applications: an overview
Author Affiliations +
Applications of materials in white-light optical imaging, remote-sensing systems are discussed. Image formation in terms of wavefronts and the influence of materials on the quality of images is given. The rationale for why some space optics structures are large is presented. Other topics are applications of adaptive spectrometers, adaptive optics, and the control of unwanted radiation. Optical materials limit the next-generation high-performance optical systems.
