Brief description:

This summer camp incorporates a list of 13 topics for optical system design. It includes some basic theory and practical skills of using special optical design software, and also an experience that can be applied for developing a wide range of optical instruments and devices.

Key modules:

List of possible research topics:

  • Design of a two-mirror optical scheme of a telescope’s objective
  • Design of a catadioptric scheme of a telescope’s objective
  • Design a telescopic system with lens inverting system
  • Design of a telescopic system with prism inverting system
  • Design of a microscope’s objective
  • Design of a photoobjective with fixed focal length
  • Design of a system for laser beam collimation
  • Design of a system for laser beam concentration
  • Design of an objective for the LWIR region
  • Design of a condenser lens
  • Design of an eyepiece
  • Design of a microscope’s illumination system in microscope
  • Design of a lens endoscopic system


As a result you will acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the optical system design. The course prescribes a certificate showing the number of earned ECTS.
