Paper Abstract

Several fast, three element refractive objectives have been designed for use with narrow bandpass filters and cooled detector arrays in the 8-13 μm infrared band. The performance of these designs, measured by the fraction of incoming radiation concentrated within the boundaries of a typical detector element, approaches the theoretical maximum. The designs also illustrate the extent to which performance can be improved through the use of aspheric surfaces.
