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:
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.
