Paper Abstract

This study presents a new method for selecting a pair of optical glass and housing material to achromatize and athermalize a lens system, by use of the factor of determination for material selection. To effectively obtain an optimum combination for materials, we newly propose the sequential material selection method by introducing the factor of determination for material selection, which depends on the level of contribution to correct these aberrations and the availability to be used as a suitable material. Even though there are many cases for material combinations, we can sequentially identify the best pair of glass and housing materials by checking the factor of determination. Using this design approach, we efficiently obtain an achromatic and athermal system through an optimum combination of materials, over the specified ranges in temperature and waveband.
