On September 12, 2019, the General Assembly for launching the research association “Freeform Optics – Research & Solutions” (FO-RS) was held in Créteil (France), at the offices of ESSILOR. FO-RS brings together companies and academic institutions wishing to join forces to promote and advance knowledge in the design, modelling, manufacturing, metrology and integration of freeform optical components. The objective of the association is to bring together scientists and industrial companies around concrete needs expressed by member companies.

About freeform optics
Freeform optics are optical components that no longer have an axis or centre of symmetry. Beyond their use in ophthalmology, astronomy and lighting for several decades, they have appeared in precision optical systems today, from automotive lighting to AR/VR devices. The use of freeform reduces the size of system, adds functionality and/or increases performance. Today, they constitute a disruptive technology that the FO-RS Association intends to address collectively.
