This paper proposes a simple noninvasive method that makes it possible to calculate the inner design parameters of the cemented doublet using measurements of its chosen paraxial optical and geometrical parameters without any damage to the system under testing (e.g., dismantling). Derived formulas are based on the knowledge of measured values of the lenses thicknesses, the radii of curvatures of the first and the last doublet’s surfaces, the paraxial focal length, and positions of the object and the image focal point. Practical usefulness of the proposed method is demonstrated on the real measurement of a known doublet.
