Abstract

A ray trace scheme for the automatic generation of optical aberration polynomials to arbitrary orders pioneered by T. B. Andersen is successfully applied to the diffraction analysis of rotationally symmetric optical systems on a desk-top computer. The diffraction-based optical transfer functions at various field positions are computed using the relatively new Winograd Fourier transform algorithm. The coding includes aspherical and reflective surfaces.
