Paper Abstract

The Farrand Optical Co., Inc. PANCAKE WINDOWTM optical simulator is a very fast, large aperture magnifier which can present to the observer a displayed image at optical infinity. The superb optical quality of this magnifier is due to the fact that reflective, and not refractive elements are used in this system. The unique configuration of this on-axis reflective system, and the optical properties of its elements will be presented. Also, its latest improvement incorporating a spherical holographic beam-splitter mirror will be discussed.
