Paper Abstract

This paper illustrates the impact of using hybrid elements in mechanically athermalized objective lenses designed for use with uncooled focal pane arrays in the 8-14 micrometers waveband. Hybrid and conventional refractive lens designs are compared in terms of primary chromatic aberrations, MTF performance, transmission, mass, and cost.
