Paper Abstract

Stray light in an optical system is the radiation that is incident on the detector, but does not originate from the conjugate object point. Cool stops are placed at strategic locations to decrease the transfer of the thermal noise to the detector plane. We describe an approach to stray light management and control that may be performed simultaneously with the first order optical system design using the y, y-bar diagram.
