What is axial mangnification?
Asked by SPSPUSA | 30th Aug, 2009, 08:45: PM
Axial magnification is used when talking about objects that do not occupy a single plane (3D objects). Axial magnification is the distance, along the optical axis, between the two image planes divided by the distance between the two object planes (extreme anterior and posterior points on the object with their conjugate image points). Axial magnification is proportional to the product of the transverse magnifications for the pair of conjugate planes at the front and back of the object.
