Paper Abstract

Infrared zoom lens systems have benefited from advances in the state of the art during the past decade. These advances have included extending the zoom range, improvements in performance, reduction of size and weight, and minimizing complexity. The application of these developments to infrared zoom lens design will be presented. The zoom lens systems of several companies active in the field will be reviewed, with some reference to tolerancing techniques for production. Innovative reflective zoom systems will also be considered. Promising future developments will be discussed.
