Abstract
We reported previously on novel methods for designing optical systems with no prior specification of system architecture (e.g., number and type of lenses and their order in the optical train). We studied their efficacy on a set of problems where aberration minimization at the focal plane was the only design objective. Here, we describe enhancements that allow multiple additional objectives (e.g., system sensitivity, size, cost) to be included in a principled manner and show how a family of non-dominated" systems that approximate the set of designs belonging to a theoretical Pareto front of optimal solutions may be efficiently created.
