ZAR files are ZEMAX archive files and ZPL files are ZEMAX macro files.  ZEMAX 13 Release 2 SP6 was used, although all files should open more-or-less fine in latest Zemax OpticStudio release.

Full excitation design, not fully updated to current design state (slight differences), full tolerance data in tolerance data editor, no merit function.

Most updated full excitation design (used for exporting STEP file for Inventor design), no tolerance data, RMS OPD-only merit function.

Full excitation design, not fully updated (slight differences), merit function for design of PR1&2

Excitation system without pupil relays 1 & 2 (this is how most excitation design occurred), not fully updated, merit function for main excitation system design.

Evaluation of nominal performance of design w/o PR1&2.

Macros used to create plots in LFS_NSRF_Full_48_performance_rev2.pdf

Macros that will create evaluation plots for "FullFull" designs (these contain PR1&2)

Macro for calculating GDD and PTD, to be used as ZPLM operand.  Some explanation of calculations is contained in PropagationTimeMath.pdf

Output plots of FullFull_Eval_macros for excitation designs containing PR1&2
