This Field Guide app derives from the treatment of geometrical optics that has evolved from both the undergraduate and graduate programs at the Optical Sciences Center at the University of Arizona. This app covers Gaussian imagery, paraxial optics, first-order optical system design, system examples, illumination, chromatic effects, and an introduction to aberrations. The appendices provide supplemental material on radiometry and photometry, the human eye, and several other topics.

Recently changed in this version

- Added support for ActionBar
- Guesture-based shortcuts for loading list of equations, favorites, and notes (see video for tutorial)
- Fixed a bug to allow entering negative signs in equations
