Description:

This is an interactive tutorial on the topic of optical thin lenses. Users explore how changes to focal length and object size affect the size and position of the image formed by a simple bi-convex thin lens. The accompanying text tutorial gives detailed information about the geometric principles governing the situation. This item is part of a larger Microscopy Primer developed by the National High Magnetic Field at Florida State University. SEE RELATED ITEMS on this page for a link to the complete primer.
