Paper Abstract

Lens design software has been designed primarily to model conventional imaging systems. While interferometers do not generally fall into this category, lens design software nonetheless is well suited for analyzing a variety of aspects of interferometric systems. The general requirements for a ray-based model of interferometers are discussed, and a variety of examples are presented. The examples are designed to demonstrate both the power and flexibility of the approach proposed here for modeling interferometers.
