Air lens vs aspheric surface: A lens design case study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We discuss the behavior of air lenses in lens design. The structural aberration coefficients of a thin air lens are derived and compared with their glass thin lens counterpart. Examples are provided for a telephoto lens and the Monochromatic Quartet where air lenses or aspheric surfaces are used.
