Paper Abstract

With the development of the technology of infrared, infrared optical system has been widely used in many fields, especially in tank target detection and recognition. The difficulty and key in the designing of LWIR optical systems for working under temperature range of -60°C~80°C is athermalization. In this paper, the infrared telephoto lens is designed which is composed of four pieces of lenses. The working temperature range is -60°C~80°C. In order to balance the chromatic aberration and thermal aberration, two aspherical surfaces are used in this cooled athermalized infrared optical system. The effective focal length is 100mm and the F-number is 2.The full field of view is 7.0°. The curve of MTF is close to diffractionlimit curve. Within the working temperature, the value of MTF at 17cy/mm is always large than 0.4. The result shows that the infrared optical system achieved better athermal performances at the working temperature range.
