Paper Abstract

The design of infrared objective lenses suitable for uncooled staring focal plane arrays for the longwave infrared are described. In order to minimize the number of lens components which are required, conic surfaces are employed. The emphasis is on cost effective solutions for high volume applications rather than achieving the ultimate in performance. Optical performance data is given for three design examples.
