Paper Abstract

This paper is concerned with the selection of optical glass in the design of imaging systems that are intended for the visible waveband. While the requirements clearly differ from one case to another, there are some general principles which are discussed in this paper. In addition, several common types of lens system are discussed in detail, and some practical examples are given.
