Lens Design Technical Event
Tuesday 8 August 2017
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Session Chair: Rich Pfisterer, Photon Engineering, LLC (USA)

"Let's Give 'Em Something to Talk About!"

Lens designers! Join us for our annual gathering to meet and discuss... lens design! Let’s talk about what we’re designing, how we’re going about doing it (what materials, software, techniques, etc.), and which problems we’re encountering. We’ll also explore current technical and commercial trends in the marketplace. This year’s invited speaker will be Dave Shafer of David Shafer Optical Design, whose talk is entitled, "My 51 Years of Optical Design Using Husserl’s Phenomenology." Many optical design examples will be shown that illustrate a systematic way of 'thinking outside the box' while doing creative design. This approach is based on insights of Edmund Husserl and his phenomenology school of philosophy.
