Paper Abstract

A tool is developed with the macro capability of CODE V for optical design with off-the-shelf catalog lenses, which can greatly reduce the fabrication costs for an optical system and shorten its development cycle. This tool automatically replaces current elements in the system by stock lenses in the database, and gets the system optimized at the same time. Major aspects of the tool, including the preparation of the stock lens database, the optimization strategy and the replacement method are discussed in detail. Three examples are designed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the replacement tool, and the results show that acceptable performance can be achieved by this tool. Finally, limitations and applications of this tool are discussed. Our tool can effectively replace elements in a system with stock lenses, and it can also improve optical performance of a system already composed of stock lenses by further replacing and optimization.
