Paper Abstract

The emergence of freeform surfaces in optical systems creates a need for new design methodologies and tools. We present a new analysis tool to facilitate spectrometer designs that leverage freeform surfaces. We demonstrate this new tool for two common all-spherical spectrometer design forms. Using insights from nodal aberration theory, this novel visualization enables the optical designer to efficiently and effectively implement freeform optical surfaces into spectrometers and other dispersive optical instrumentation.
