Paper Abstract

An f/1 objective lens for use in the infrared from 7 to 12 µm has been designed using axial gradients in zinc sulfide/zinc selenide. The resulting optical systems are color corrected and use fewer elements than comparable conventional designs. Lens blank material has been produced by chemical vapor deposition and a prototype lens assembly is being fabricated and tested.
