Abstract

We show the possibility of simultaneously eliminating all third- and fifth-order monochromatic aberrations by using an objective consisting of three cemented lenses with radial distribution of refractive indices. We present design procedures for removal of these aberrations and reduction of residual higher-order aberrations.
