Paper Abstract

We have developed an optical design program for the Hewlett-Packard 9815 desktop computer and used it in teaching an optical design laboratory course. The program carries out most of the standard calculations used in optical design programs, but is limited to optimization of third-order aberrations. This paper describes our experience in teaching this course, and gives some of the optical design examples considered.
