Abstract

A method of ray-tracing calculations for uniaxial optical components with curved surfaces is presented. A set of simple ray-tracing formulas is derived. With the spatial ray-tracing method in geometrical optics, by using a computer we plot spot diagrams of extraordinary-ray images formed by some crystal systems.
