Paper Abstract

A method based on Seidel aberration theory to design a four mirror optical system with wide field of view was mentioned in this paper. In this method, Seidel aberration theory was studied, and the technical parameters of the system were got from the demands, then the technical parameters, such as the diameter of entrance pupil and the field of view were substituted into the Seidel aberration equations. Then we solved the equations with additional limit, and got the initial parameters of system, for example the radius of curvature of each mirror. The example in this article was a design of a four mirror system with a field of view of 15°and F number of 5. This example showed that the method based on Seidel aberration theory to design a four mirror optical system with wide field of view is effective and feasible.
