Paper Abstract

An investigation is described in which asphericity is used to correct the spherical aberration of a high numerical aperture system comprising a sphere followed by a plane parallel plate. This scheme, first devised by Van Heel1 for use as a monochromatic test device, provides a model to investigate the aberration contribution from coefficient terms of the reduced Feder equation for asphericity on a plane surface. Analysis and manipulation of surface profiles is facilitated by use of a closed form of the Feder formula: [see Formula in manuscript].
