Lecture 16: Camera & Lenses Cont. (23)

One major factor that has contributed to the complexity of modern lens design is the availability of new materials with unique optical properties. Modern lens designers have access to a wide range of materials with different refractive indices, dispersive properties, and other characteristics, allowing them to design lenses with highly specific optical properties. Computer-aided design tools have revolutionized the lens design process, allowing designers to model and optimize lens designs in a virtual environment. This has significantly reduced the time and cost required to develop new lenses, while also allowing designers to explore a much wider range of design options.
