Paper Abstract

The goal of this paper is to comparatively present the functionality of an achromatic doublet and of the human eye. The comparisons are done using demonstrative images which present the spatial resolution of an image that is considered the tested object. To perform the simulations are presented the models and are computed the point spread functions of the eye and the doublet. Even that the achromatic doublet and the human eye have the same optical configuration, between those two exist big differences in functionality due to the effect of the optical aberrations. In function of the number of the aberrations present in to the human eye the point spread function of the eye can considerably varies from one person to other. Instead the achromatic doublet can focus two rays in the same point and its point spread function remains constant.
