Paper Abstract

This paper describes a new design method for athermalized optical systems. It can be accomplished by combining optical materials and by selecting suitable lens powers. However, there are difficulties in determining material and power of each lens, because achromatism is simultaneously required. To determine the condition of eliminate thermal focus shift and longitudinal chromatic aberration easily by simple drawing, an athermal chart is proposed which is constructed by plotting chromatic dispersive power and thermal dispersive power on a cartesian coordinate system.
