Abstract

Much experience in practical optical systems design (over 40 years for each author) gives us the perspective to discuss recent trends in advanced optical technologies. We give an ontology of its development and try to make a forecast for the near future, which will be useful for beginners as well as professionals in this complex field.

Keywords: automatic design; computer revolution; optical design
