About This Webinar
The conventional optical design approach results in designs that are very sensitive to manufacturing and alignment errors, which means the optical product is difficult to repeatedly manufacture successfully. A new method, called High-Yield Optimization, produces designs that meet tight performance specifications, provide a higher manufacturing yield, and lower manufacturing costs through less waste.

In this webinar, learn how you can:
    • Optimize for as-built performance, rather than nominal performance.
    • Account for common manufacturing defects in the design process.
    • Find optical design solutions that have both good image quality and rays with low angles of incidence, which reduces the tolerance sensitivity of the resulting design when fabricated.
About the presenter:
Kenneth Moore, Ph.D., founder and technical fellow, Zemax.Kenneth Moore, Ph.D., is the founder of Zemax and the author of the optical design program, now called OpticStudio. He currently serves as a technical fellow at Zemax and has spent the last 30 years developing design and analysis methods for the lens, illumination, and general optical system design industry. Moore received his doctoral degree in optical sciences from the University of Arizona and is a fellow of both SPIE and OSA, The Optical Society.

Who should attend:

Optical and system designers, engineers, scientists, and researchers who need to speed the path to high-quality design, development, and manufacturing can benefit from learning about high-yield optimization. If you need to develop high-quality products in an extremely short time frame, please join us for this webinar.
