Abbe sine condition and related imaging conditions in geometrical optics
Author(s): Joseph J. M. Braat

Paper Abstract

Abbe's sine condition or other imaging conditions for the aperture rays of an axial pencil determine how an object volume is imaged by the optical system in image space. We analytically derive the imaging condition which should lead to the largest possible volume in image space where the aberration (spherical aberration and coma) stays below a certain prescribed level.
