Paper Abstract

We derive and investigate an exact analytical paraxial longitudinal chromatic function for axis-symmetric optical systems. We prove the existence of two conjugate pairs of achromatic points in the object and image space of every centered optical system (in general they are two, but in some cases they can be missing or their number can be one or infinite-dimensional) and derive formulae for determination of their position in object and image spaces. On the base of this function we develop an exact analytical design method for paraxial chromatic correction in axis-symmetric optical systems. In addition we show some examples.
