Starting from the Luneberg lens index profile, we apply the transformation design method to the problem of far-field imaging of (infinitely) distant objects. This analysis yields a single element lens with a planar image surface, zero aberrations of all orders, zero F-number and (in some cases) constant aperture for all angles of incidence [10].
