Lenses by Design Problems and Solutions
Members of the optics community may be interested to know that there is also a series of such challenges in the field of lens design. Lens designers look forward to the series of major conferences devoted to optical design known as the International Lens Design Conferences (ILDC, now the International Optical Design Conference, IODC). ILDCs have been held every five years since 1975, and at each conference there has been at least one lens design problem for members of the community to consider. Problem descriptions are published before the conference and people are invited to submit solutions. The results are presented at the conference and published in the Proceedings.
