Geometrical charged-particle optics describes the motion of charged particles in macroscopic electromagnetic fields by employing the well-established notations and concepts of light optics. Macroscopic fields are produced by macroscopic elements, such as solenoids, electric, and magnetic multipoles, or by voltages applied to conducting devices, for example, cylinders or apertures. We define the atomic fields within solid or biological objects as microscopic fields. The propagation of the particles in these fields will not be considered within the frame of geometrical charged-particle optics
