Paper Abstract

We have developed a software package for interactive design of optical systems. This software has extensive graphic visualization methods to interactively study the alignment characteristics of an optical system. The optical system layout, the multi-dimensional optical parameter spaces, and the image space can be displayed on a computer screen. The user can interactively vary one or more design and alignment parameters and analyze the corresponding behavior of the system. This results in a very powerful design tool. In this paper we present some details of the software package and preliminary results in optical system design and alignment.
