Paper Abstract

A number of optical plastic materials are examined. The indices of refraction are measured in the visible and near- IR spectral regions from 435.8 nm to 1052 nm. Some obtained data and Abbe constants are presented. The glass libraries of the optical design software packages are updated. The spherochromatic aberration balancing is analyzed during the all-plastic doublet and triplet synthesis for a working wavelengths interval from 600 nm to 900 nm. Two achromatic triplets are designed intended for NIR region. Three all- plastic 3X magnifiers are developed for NV goggles. The optical configurations are given. The aberration corrections are evaluated. The obtained optical performance is illustrated. Some conclusions for the trends in all-plastic optical design are drawn.
