Paper Abstract

A comprehensive database of essentially all of the world's lens patents has been compiled, and an interface written, to permit a lens designer to quickly scan all of the lenses suitable for a stated purpose or constructed in accordance with stated rules. These data can easily be imported into a commercial optical design program, yielding immediate starting points for many optimization problems.
