Lens design with automatic differentiation

Abstract
We propose to power lens design ray-tracing engines with automatic differentiation. Along with the primal, derivatives are algorithmically obtained for lens parameters. Exploiting the gradient information, applications are shown including design optimization and sensitivity analysis.
