About This Webinar

Contrast Optimization Zemax webinarDesigning micro-imaging systems commonly used in robotic surgery and precision small-scale imaging used in the defense, industrial, and commercial industries requires calculation of the modulation transfer function (MTF), where spatial frequencies beyond a certain value are not needed. A newer method, contrast optimization, greatly simplifies the calculation, giving imaging system designers a better option for targeting imaging quality. Compared to direct MTF optimization, contrast optimization improves the speed of MTF optimization — and results in better design solutions.

This webinar will demonstrate the use of contrast optimization in the development of a micro-imaging system, along with a comparison using other optimization methods. It will also look at results using alternate lens design programs.
