Description:

This item is an introductory tutorial on the topic of lenses. It explains how lenses are classified according to their curvature and the type of refraction that occurs when light travels through them. Each classification is supplemented with drawings which illustrate the focal planes and geometric properties of various types of lenses. Also included is a Java simulation of lens shape and action. This item is part of a larger collection of materials for students of introductory optics on the topic of light and color. (See Related Item to link to the full index on this topic.)
