Paper Abstract

The algebraic method for correction of aberrations was exploited in this work both for solving the problem of optical glass selection and for determining the radii of curvatures of cemented doublet. Exact aperture aberrations in the meridional plane are taken into consideration and the only limitation is the usage of the spherical surfaces. Optical properties of the hypothetical optical glass were determined with the use of only two parameters. Method consists in the solution of the system of 13 nonlinear equations, where unknowns are the angles of incidence at each surface of 4 specific rays and one parameter connected with the optical glass properties. Finite lens thicknesses selected for given aperture are fixed similarly to some glass parameters. Two approaches are recommended to solve the problem of the selection of the first optical glass. The algebraic analysis of the selection of hypothetical optical glass in the cemented doublet with the leading crown for the most interesting range of variation of the refractive indices of the crown and flint glass was performed. An example of full calculations of cemented doublet f10013 was given together with the algebraic choice of catalog glasses and determination of radii of curvatures.
