Abstract:

Optical design modules are defined as a class of two-surface optical systems with fixed focal lengths and having the property that, relative to a pair of conjugate planes, one finite and the other infinite, the third-order spherical aberration is zero. It is shown that parameters derivable from the Delano y, y bar diagram form a convenient set of independent parameters that completely describe and define some of the general properties of design modules. Such representations were found to yield insights in the analysis of modules that cannot readily be obtained using better known methods.
