Summary of the technology
The invention relates to a system and to a method for characterizing, designing and/or modifying optical properties of hybrid diffractive/refractive lenses with no need of manufacturing such a lens.
Description of the technology
The hybrid diffractive/refractive optics simulator is a rapid, economical and low consumption system in optical bench. Unlike numerical simulation, the proposed system provides empirical results, which are closer to the final behaviour of an optical
This versatile system permits to characterize a diffractive profile independently or in combination with a refractive element before production.
Testing physically new diffractive intraocular lens designs:
- Extended focus, trifocal, bifocal, aberration compensation.
- Also applicable to diffractive contact lenses.
