CALCULATION METHOD FOR DESIGN OF CONCENTRIC MIRROR, MIRROR-LENS, AND LENS SYSTEMS
Saint Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics; postgraduate
Abstract. On the base of requirement of spherical and chromatic aberration correction, formulas defining overall dimensions and structural parameters of an optical system with concentric refracting and reflecting surfaces are derived. Relations used to specify the optimal choice of material for lens elements are also obtained.
