Paper Abstract

The optical design of telecentric optical systems is not a well known or published area of the optical design field. This paper is intended as a partial remedy for these deficiencies. The property of telecentricity will be defined and the use of telecentric optical systems will be discussed. This paper will recommend a standard method of telecentric lens description, quantification, specification, and terminology. Telecentric optical design challenges, difficulties, and recommendations will be discussed. Finally, a complete telecentric optical system design specifications will be presented.
