About the article
Anika Broemel studied Physics at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena. She received her diploma in the field of Thin-Film Physics in 2010. She then joined the Institute of Photonic Technology to work on optical filters for THz applications. Since 2014, she has been working in the Optical System Design Group at the Institute of Applied Physics in Jena. Her main research interest is surface descriptions for freeform systems.
Chang Liu obtained her bachelor’s degree in Optical Information Science and Technology at the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China. She later received her master’s degree in Photonics at the University of Jena, Germany, in 2015. Now, she is pursuing her PhD in the Optical System Design Group at the University of Jena. Her main research field is imaging system design.
Yi Zhong received her bachelor’s degree in Applied Physics from Nankai University, Tianjin, China, in 2011. In 2014, she finished her master’s study in Abbe School of Photonics from Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, Germany. She joined the Optical System Design Group at the Institute of Applied Physics in University Jena during her master’s study, and since 2014, she has been a PhD student in this group. Her main research areas are freeform optics, Scheimpflug systems, off-axis mirror system design, initial system design methods, and aberration theory.
Yueqian Zhang did his undergraduate study in Optical Engineering at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

Herbert Gross studied Physics at the University of Stuttgart. He received his PhD on laser simulation in 1995. He joined Carl Zeiss in 1982 where he worked as a scientist in optical design, modeling, and simulation. From 1995 to 2010, he headed the central department of optical design and simulation. Since 2012, he has been a professor at the University of Jena in the Institute of Applied Physics and holds a chair of Optical System Design. His main working areas are physical optical simulations, beam propagation, partial coherence, classical optical design, aberration theory, system development, and metrology. He was editor and main author of the book series ‘Handbook of Optical systems’.
