Abstract

Significant improvement over a patented lens design is achieved using multi-objective evolutionary optimization. A comparison of the results obtained from NSGA2 and ε-MOEA is done. In our current study, ε-MOEA converged to essentially the same Pareto-optimal solutions as the one with NSGA2, but ε-MOEA proved to be better in providing reasonably good solutions, comparable to the patented design, with lower number of lens evaluations. ε-MOEA is shown to be computationally more efficient and practical than NSGA2 to obtain the required initial insight into the objective function trade-offs while optimizing large and complex optical systems.
