International Optical Design Conference (IODC)

Occurs every 4 years and provides the opportunity for attendees from around the world to interact in a structured and yet informal format.

IODC covers a wide range of applications and developments throughout the industry, and the conference is co-located with three other timely topical meetings: Flat Optics: Components to Systems, Optical Fabrication and Testing, and Freeform Optics.

During the past few years, many areas of optical design have seen rapid development driven by a combination of increased demands on system performance, significant advances in both computing power and design software, and by new manufacturing technologies that offer entirely new engineering options.

With such an increase of activity occurring throughout the optics industry, it becomes imperative for designers, engineers, and scientists to keep up to date with the latest state of the art.

Design problems for lens design and illumination design have been presented in advance of the meeting so that contributed solutions can be compiled and presented at IODC. Details of the IODC 2021 Design Challenge can be found on www.iodc.info.
