Paper Abstract

Advances in optical design have been closely related to advances in numerical computation. The microcomputer revolution now taking place promises to open the way for new and innovative optical design. This will take place as optical design becomes easier, more available, and far less costly, as the result of powerful "canned" design programs outfitted on low-cost personal computers. A user-friendly program is described which makes possible low cost "automatic" lens design. Solutions to some typical optical design problems are presented. Prospects for future capabilities are described.
