CAMP IN OPTICAL SYSTEM DESIGN 2020

Place of Study: ITMO University

Language: English

Duration: 4 weeks: 2 weeks of distant learning (June 1-15, 2020), 2 weeks of on-campus learning (July 1-12, 2020)

Outcome: ITMO official certificate, 4 ECTS

Deadline: May 27, 2020*

Fees: €700


Program of the summer school

The camp is designed for students with the background in optics or those interested in broadening their knowledge in this field. So if you could be easily inspired just by thinking about how to reduce aberrations in optical systems or increase the resolution of imaging system, this program is exactly the thing for you!

Admission Requirements: Bachelor’s level students in respective fields (4th year and above) Master’s and PhD students 

Summer Camp Program

The camp incorporates a list of 13 topics in optical system design and includes both theoretical classes and hands-on experience of using special optical design software that can be applied for developing a wide range of optical instruments and devices.

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 of 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 photo objective 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
