Want to brush up on your lens formulae? Looking for a good reference book on fiber optics? Need to know if someone has already come up with your idea for a great new light-manipulating device? Then stop by, an index of more than 2000 optics references and resources. The site links to an eclectic variety of materials, ranging from researchers' home pages to lecture notes to a database of optics patents. Web master Bruce Nichols, an optical engineer from Columbia, Maryland, says he casts his net widely when looking for links. “Basically, the criterion is, ‘Is it instructive?’” he says. Links are segregated into useful categories, such as Fundamentals, Design, and Applications, and the site's search engine can help you find just what you're after.
