17
Modern Optics Lab Experiment 2: REFLECTION AND REFRACTION AT SPHERICAL INTERFACES Lens Maker’s Equation (for thin lenses) Use proper conventions: R is positive if center of curvature (C) is to the right of vertex (V) R is negative if center of curvature (C) is to the left of vertex (V) R 1 is the curvature on the left side. R 2 is the curvature on the right side.
