Lens design is both the art and the science involved in the application of basic optical principles to the creation of a set of parameters describing a lens for an optical instrument employing refracting or reflecting components. The techniques involved in lens design incorporate the setup of a system using basic optical principles, the iteration of that initial description using geometrical optical principles and the analysis of the system in terms of its ability to convey information or energy to a detector.
