7 September 2016 Recent advances in the SMS design method: 3D aplanatism and diffraction
Author Affiliations +
Recent advances in the Simultaneous Multiple Surfaces (SMS) design method are reviewed in this paper. In particular, we review the design of diffractive surfaces using the SMS method and the concept of freeform aplanatism as a limit case of a 3D SMS design.
