Optics Design

Optics design (or: optical design) is the process of designing a lens to meet a set of project performance requirements and constraints, including cost and fabrication limitations.

Design parameters include surface profile types (spherical, aspheric, holographic, diffractive, etc.), as well as the radius of curvature, distance to the target surface, material type and optionally tilt and decenter.

Generally, the process is computationally intensive, using ray tracing or other techniques to model how the lens affects light that passes through it.
