3 September 2015 Analysis of three-element zoom systems for laser beam expanders with tunable-focus lenses
Author Affiliations +
Our work is focused on the problem of a theoretical analysis of imaging properties and an initial optical design of a three-element zoom optical system for laser beam expanders using lenses with a tunable focal length. Equations that enable to calculate basic paraxial properties and parameters of such optical systems are derived. Finally, the derived equations are applied on an example of calculation of parameters of the three-element zoom system for the laser beam expander.
