Paper Abstract

A comparison is made between geometric and diffractive parameters of interest for intermediate spherical aberration. The purpose is to identify the transition region where the validity of one gives way to the other so that a best image plane can always be defined by using one of the criteria. In the process a new criterion, first power peak, was discovered that is applicable over the range of interest.
