Optical Design with CodeV®
Addressed topics

Optical system analysis

Optimization of optical systems with simple or more complex constrains

Introduction to tolerancing

Rough set out of more advanced CodeV features

The program

Basics and first steps

  • Introductory lecture on object/image conjugation, entrance and exit pupils, aberrations, diffraction, ...
  • CodeV hands-on workshop with a simple example (Cooke triplet)

Optical systems

  • Study of aberrations and optical system quality criteria on different examples
  • Setting of mirrors, aspheric surfaces, obscurations, tilts and decenters, multiconfigurations...

More advanced elements and training

  • Optimization: basics, methods, and practical tutorial (example of eyepiece design with complex constrains)
  • Training tutorial (on a catadioptric system)
  • Introduction to tolerancing and some other advanced CodeV options
  • Last tutorial subject at the trainee's choice
Methodology and assessment

Mixed lectures and tutorials in a computer facility room

Example based teaching

Supervised software usage, largely guided at beginning, and more free later when user skills increase
