Using the TrueFreeForm surface for grid-based freeform optimization

Using the TrueFreeForm surface for grid-based freeform optimization

The TrueFreeForm surface is a sequential surface type in OpticStudio which uses a superposed combination of polynomial and grid-based sag characterizations. In addition, the TrueFreeForm surface also supports optimization of the sag values at each data point in the grid sag data file, allowing for a unique, non-parameterized optimization methodology. This can be advantageous in cases where spatially-selective optimization is desired, or a given polynomial function cannot well represent the desired sag structure.
