Use of the abbe sine condition to quantify alignment aberrations in optical imaging systems

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

Abstract

Violation of Abbe's sine condition is well known to cause coma in axisymmetric imaging systems. We define non-symmetric violations, show how they come from misaligned optical systems, and how they causes image degradations.
