Paper Abstract

Gradient-index (GRIN) zoom lenses are shown to offer superior imaging performance to homogenous designs over the visible spectrum. For a given element count, copolymer GRIN designs are better corrected for axial and lateral color than homogeneous aspheric designs. A macro was developed in CODE V® to calculate the surface contributions to both axial and lateral color for a radial GRIN lens. This macro confirms the improved color correction of the GRIN systems over the homogeneous ones.
