Paper Abstract

The modulation transfer function of optical systems is computed under strict consideration of diffraction at a given spectral distribution of light source and radiation detector. The consideration is based on the precondition that the monochromatic aberrations of the optical system are negligibly small and that only the chromatic aberra-tions are effective. The modulation transfer function is computed for different states of correction with regard to the correction of the chromatic aberrations (over and under-correction, secondary spectrum) and the corresponding results discussed in order to obtain rules for optimum correction of chromatic aberration.
