Paper Abstract

A new form of three mirror anastigmat (TMA) has emerged in which the primary and tertiary mirrors share a common vertex. This allows the two mirror surfaces to be machined on the same substrate. The literature to date has shown that reimaging forms have been restricted to a moderate field-of-view (< 3 degree(s)). This paper illustrates design forms which achieve excellent performance over a wide field-of-view (3 degree(s) X 7 degree(s)).
