An Expert System has been developed which will undertake the preliminary design of optical systems. During the preliminary design the optical designer considers the specification of an optical system and derives parameters such as lens type, focal length, etc. These parameters are then converted into power group layouts with curvatures, thicknesses, etc ready for optimisation by lens design software. The preliminary design will have been arrived at by utilising previous design knowledge and 'rules of thumb' acquired through experience. It is this stage of the design process which has been implemented by an expert system, and will hopefully prove a valuable aid to the optical designer during the important creative stage of the design process.
