Paper Abstract

Miniature optical systems utilizing arrays of lenses had been conceived by the early part of this century. More recent uses for multi-aperture optics have included Hartmann wavefront sensing and agile beam steering. To support our own research efforts in micro-optics Adaptive Optics Associates, Inc. developed first-order raytrace software that is capable of modeling multi-aperture systems. The graphical user interface at the heart of this software gives a CAD- like utility to the program, which is a powerful tool for the micro-optics design engineer. The article discusses the benefits of such an interface. Several examples of micro-optics systems taken from available literature are analyzed.
