Paper Abstract

We show that an aplanatic imaging system can approach theoretical maximum concentration limit following a brief review of Abbe Sine condition and aplanatism. We use a two-mirror case to demonstrate how to construct such aplanatic systems using Luneburg method. The result is useful in designing high-performance concentrators.
