Paper Abstract

Genetic algorithm and its application in lens design is studied. A new algorithm is presented which includes a genetic algorithm (GA) and damped least square (DLS) method. The convergence property of GA in lens design is demonstrated. A GA generated design is obtained without artificial intervention. The aberration correction has to be done by DLS, and the result is close to the starting configuration generated by GA.
