Paper Abstract

In this day of the high speed computer with automatic optimizing programs, many optical designers are prone to forget that there are some simple approaches to the solution of optical design problems. One of these simple concepts is that of the concentric optical system. Some novel applications of this principle, to achieve diffraction limited performance for flying spot recording and readout are discussed, along with possible applications to a unique infrared optical system.
