Abstract

An approach for ab initio synthesis of the thin lens structure of linearly compensated zoom lenses is reported. This method uses evolutionary programming that explores the available configuration space formed by powers of the individual components, the intercomponent separations, and the relative movement parameters of the moving components. Useful thin lens structures of optically and linearly compensated zoom lens systems are obtained by suitable formulation of the merit function of optimization. This paper reports our investigations on three-component zoom lens structures. Illustrative numerical results are presented.
