Abstract

A new lens design for precise copying exemplifies the success of the rms error function as a suitable criterion for the design of high resolution lenses. The design, a 145-mm f/4.0, gives 400-line/mm, high contrast, white-light visual resolution throughout a 30-mm flat image when used at 20:1 conjugates. On high resolution plates, a resolution of 320 lines/mm is obtained. The five-glass design has no vignetting of the marginal beams, presents no manufacturing problems, and gave full resolution when first assembled. The prescription was found by the LASL 1972 Lens Design Program.
