Paper Abstract

GENII is a versatile, interactive optical design optimization and analysis program. It can be run on a variety of computers from two thousand dollar desktop PC's to multi-million dollar supercomputers. Its capabilities, even on a PC, are comparable to those of programs available only on minicomputers or mainframes. COOL/GENII, an optional combination with David Grey's COP (described in a separate paper), provides further enhanced optimization capabilities. Consideration of the following program areas will be used to describe the capabilities of GENII: Optical system characteristics simulated Analyses available Merit function (defect function) used in optimization Optimization procedures User interface
