An editorial digest on machine-vision optics is available for free download from Vision Systems Design. In “Understanding machine vision optics: An A-Z,” optics experts Greg Hollows and Stuart Singer describe how lenses can limit or maximize the performance of imaging systems.

Hollows and Singer highlight the physics behind factors such as diffraction, lens aperture, focal length, and the wavelength of light to give the reader a sense of fundamentals when selecting optics for machine-vision applications.

By considering their applications, resolution, illumination, depth of field (DOF), and field of view (FOV), readers will understand how to better build systems that achieve the objectives of any given imaging process.

“Understanding machine vision optics: An A-Z” is available for free download to anyone who provides contact information. You can download the guide here.
