Abstract

It has been recently shown that the complex problem of thin lens structural design of a multicomponent lens system with a prespecified set of primary aberration residuals and Gaussian characteristics can be reduced to the problem of design of individual components with specified Gaussian parameters and central aberration targets. This paper reports a systematic approach to study the feasibility of using singlets for the individual components. The method provides an analytical procedure to select the optimum glass in a semiautomatic manner. It also attempts to ascertain the practical viability of a singlet solution by considering the possible effects of the structure of the singlet on higher-order aberrations. A set of graphs for rapid study of the feasibility of a singlet solution is also presented.
