Petzval Lens Optimization

Application ID: 101041

This example shows how to perform parameter optimization on a lens system. The optimization is motivated by the replacement of one of the glasses in a prior optical prescription with a new glass having slightly different optical dispersion coefficients. The control parameters are the radii of curvature of the lenses, while the objective function is a combination of root mean square spot sizes at different wavelengths and field angles.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
