Paper Abstract

Design methods are presented to facilitate studies of unobstructed afocal systems composed of two and three spherical mirrors. Only unobstructed systems with a plane of symmetry are considered. Low order imaging constraints are determined to eliminate available degrees of freedom and reduce the dimensionality of the configuration space. Example systems are presented.
