Paper Abstract

The effect of altering the magnitude of a stabilizing factor used in the PSD lens design optimization technique is discussed. Analysis of this effect leads to a method of accounting for the influence of the inhomogeneous second partial derivatives. The improved convergence rate of this method will be demonstrated using examples obtained with the SYNOPSYS lens design program.
