Abstract
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Observatory, the follow-on mission to the Hubble Space Telescope and to the Spitzer Space Facility, will yield astounding breakthroughs in the realms of infrared space science. The science instrument suite for this Observatory will consist of a Near-Infrared Camera, a Near-Infrared Spectrograph, a Mid-Infrared Instrument with imager, coronagraph and integral field spectroscopy modes, and a Fine Guider System Instrument with both a Guider module and a Tunable Filter Module. In this paper we present an overview of the optical designs of the telescope and instruments.
