Computer experiment and global optimization of layered monocentric lens systems


Journal Article

In this paper we derive a general analytical solution for a monocentric lens system and present a global optimization method combining sequential design for global optimization and an expected improvement algorithm for global optimization for the design and analysis of a layered monocentric lens system, which provides an "intelligent" way to search the optimization space based on accumulated experience. We then apply these methods to an example of monocentric lens design, and explore the improvement in system performance obtained through increasing the system volume. © 2011 Elsevier GmbH.
