Practical tutorial: A simple strategy to start a pinhole lens design

Irina Livshits and Donald C. Dilworth

Abstract

Modern lens design software improves the performance of a given design. However, a novice may not have a suitable starting design available. This paper presents several methodologies that can be applied to a variety of optical design problems, in order to generate a configuration with a high likelihood of meeting a set of goals.
