Paper Abstract

Some results obtained in the realization of compact relay system design are presented. Four optical configurations have been analyzed. Two symmetrical schemes were examined having field Smith's lenses for an image scaling of -1x. The achieved numerical aperture is up to 0.35 and the MTFs curves are at 40 cycles1/mm for a contrast ratio of 0.2. The third design has a large field of 40 mm but its F-number is about F/4.5. The last relay system is unsymmetrical. The scaling is 2x and the image field exceeds 50 mm. The aberration balancing result and the optical systems performance are illustrated.
