Abstract

Code V, an optical design program, was used to design a lens for a three-dimensional mapping application. The purpose of the lens system is to project an array of spots of light onto the object of interest. The size of the projected spots can be used to determine the distance from the the lens to the object. The design criterion for this system was a 2% accuracy of position with a two lens system. The use of anamorphic and aspheric surfaces was also investigated as a means to improve the design performance.
