Paper Abstract

When optical systems are designed, the final stage corresponds to the optimization of an initial design, and frequently the methods of damped least squares are used. However, some methods as the one mentioned find local minimums and not the global one. Therefore, the solution depends mainly of the initial design. The method proposed in this work, is based in the genetic algorithms that find the global minimum, and besides an initial design is not necessary to begin the optimization process.
