Description

With free forms and aspheres high quality optical systems can be realised that are much more compact than systems based on spherical components. A further disruptive improvement of optical systems can be achieved using graded index (GRIN) materials. Recently several new methods have been developed to make refractive index profiles with arbitrary position dependence. To be able to incorporate very promising GRIN based components, new optical design methods are to be developed.

Usage options

High quality imaging systems for extreme requirements such as high field of view. High quality compact and/or light weight systems.
