Paper Abstract

The control of chromatic aberration, especially for appreciably large bandwidths, constitutes one of the most challenging aspects of optical design. In this paper a method for identification of materials whose combinations enable enhanced achromatic performance is addressed. Specifically, an investigation into achromatic design for the mid- to long wave infrared spectral range is studied. Verification of the methodology developed is illustrated by its application to the design of an infrared scene projection optic capable of operation over the 3.0 (mu) to 12.0 (mu) wavelength range.
