Paper Abstract

For many years, Itek's OPUS optical design program has incorporated features that facilitate the design of systems with a single plane of symmetry. These include the use of analytical derivatives, polynomial aberrations, nonsymmetrical surface deformations, and special aberrations for configuration control. Recently, it was decided to extend this capability so that one could design systems without any symmetry at all. This report will describe some of the program changes necessary to accomplish this and some lens systems that we designed by using the new code.
