Abstract

Axially asymmetric optical systems treated in this paper contain both freeform surfaces and spheres. In these systems, freeform surfaces need to be allocated at the most effective position. The problem can be elegantly solved with the method of traveling freeform surfaces. The purpose of this paper is to show that the sensitivity control can be included in this design process.
