Paper Abstract

The Solar Magnetic Field Telescope (MFT) , which imaged directly towards the sun , received about 1000W heat load irradiating into the telescope system, resulting in changes of ambient temperature. According to the principles of athermal design, a collimating lens system was designed, allowing MFT to work properly between a wider temperature range . The collimating lens system with F number of 3.55, worked in the visible spectrum, had the effective focal length of 156.4mm and the full field of view of 2.8 arc min ×2.8 arc min. Through the passive optical athermal method , the optimized lens works at ambient temperature ranging from -40℃ to 60℃.The radii of RMS are all smaller than the pixel pitch. The image quality approaches to diffraction limit and the MTF value is over 0.75, which satisfies the system specifications.
