Paper Abstract

The Near InfraRed Camera (NIRCam) for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a refracting camera system. Its unique performance derives from the Lithium Fluoride, Barium Fluoride and Zinc Selenide lenses that provide aberration and color correction over the large operating wavelength. This paper describes the optical prescription, lens materials and prototype characterization for the camera lenses.
