Paper Abstract

A statistical methodology used to judge optical material interpolation models is presented in this paper. A quality- of-fit criterion related to probable performance impact in lens design is used. This treatment was developed as a way to judge the acceptability in lens design of low and medium precision data so that material model developed from this type of data could be used to some level of confidence in a wide assortment of lens designs--in other words, judging whether the material model is universally applicable. The results will show that a universal acceptability criterion is very demanding on the statistics of the data. However, the method developed lends itself to a wider use in judging material models for less demanding lens designs, too. Therefore, the initial criteria goal may rule out some fit models for universal utility in lens design, but the same material models may be usable for less demanding lens design performance situations.
