Paper Abstract

A new software product for computer-aided design of optical system has been worked out at the Data Storage Laboratory of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. It consists of three specialized modules. The first module - the Library or Optical Components can be used to define, actualize, and store in the external memory the data concerning the specific optical components organized in the respective functional classes. About ten thousand different components can be defined simultaneously, their exact number depending on the external memory capacity of the system. The second program module allows the user to construct various optical systems by specifying up to sixty model optical components of centerings and orientations which are physically acceptable though otherwise arbitrary. The optical system constructed in this way can be further subjected to various analyses. The third module of the package served to represent the connections between the variables involved either numerically or graphically.
