Abstract
In an attempt to determine what other teachers of lens design teach, I constructed a short questionnaire and sent it by e- mail to a wide range of schools that are listed in the SPIE's 'Optics Education 1997.' I wanted to see what commonality there was between lens design courses and where the emphases are placed. This paper describes the types of courses that are taught, their content, the approaches used, and the tools the teachers used to introduce a fairly narrow technical subject to novices.
