Paper Abstract

The degradation of image quality caused by asymmetric surface form errors is evaluated and analyzed in several types of lens systems, for example, the objective for a compact disc and the camera lenses. The asymmetric surface form error is expressed by the coefficients of Zernike's circle polynomial and applied to ray tracing. This simulation improves the efficiency of the analysis of the molded lenses and the setting of the fabrication tolerance in advance.
