We designed a marine signal lantern optical system by using a Fresnel form. The Fresnel lens was constructed with an optical material, a focal length, a groove number (or zone number), and optical elements of a groove’s slope. Such optics have several advantages over conventional lens systems; large aperture systems may be constructed cheaply and are light in weight. The radiant energy can be distributed uniformly over the sensitive surface area. The large-aperture Fresnel-lens groove parameter, where each optical sag element is part of an independent lens, was obtained by using an analytic method, and a design variable was identified decided to satisfy the constraint.

일반적으로 등명기용 광학계는 광을 멀리 전달하는 목적으로 사용하고, 부피를 줄이기 위하여 Fresnel 형태의 lens를 사용한다. Fresnel lens는 광학 재질, 초점거리, groove개수 (zone 개수) 및 groove의 기울기 등의 광학요소로서 특징 지워진다. 이와 같은 Fresnel 형태의 대구경 광학계의 설계를 근축광학이론을 이용하여 해석적인 방법으로 각 sag별 광학적요소를 독립적인 렌즈의 일부분으로 설정하여, 각각의 구속조건을 만족하도록 설계 변수를 결정하고, 중심 광점에 대하여 시준빔(collimation beam)이 되도록 최적 설계하였다.
