This tutorial shows how to set up a multi-element objective lens. The chosen lens is a Petzval lens with field flattener described in 'Fundamental Optical Design', by M. Kidger, 2001, pg 192. The tutorial demonstrates how to include a geometric sequence using the 'Spherical General Lens 3D' part found in the COMSOL part library. Also demonstrated are the use of clear apertures, as well as edge and aperture obstructions. Finally, the results of a grid-based ray trace at a single wavelength and field angle are shown graphically.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
