Abstract: The task of Optical Design is to find an element which transforms a given distribution of ligth at a certain input plain into a desired distribution at an output plane in terms of amplidtude or phase. This inverse problem is typically solved by optimization techniques with results which are not unique. Here, a new approach is presented: The basic idea is to construct optical elements by adding up primitive, i.e. generic, optical elements. Thus, we call the procedure "summation of optical components" (SOC). Hence, the SOC concept allows inverse problems to be solved by synthesis, i.e. by a forward strategy. The resulting design can be refractive or diffractive, as needed. The SOC concept is pointed out. Examples are given to illustrate and to prove the concept.
