Paper Abstract

The field of infrared micro-spectroscopy chiefly utilizes reflective objective designs due to the broad spectral ranges over which they operate. Some disadvantages of this design methodology are briefly discussed. A technique for the identification of complimentary materials best suited for enhanced achromatic performance over broad spectral regions in the infrared is investigated. This technique is applied to the task of designing refractive microscope objectives capable of diffraction limited performance over the 0.8 (mu) to 12 (mu) spectral range.
