Abstract

The spectral changes of a partially coherent polychromatic light focused by an apertured lens with chromatic aberration are investigated. It is demonstrated that the spectrum in the focused field is different from that in the aperture. Comparing with the spectrum in the aperture, the spectrum in the focused field shifts to lower or higher frequency, which is defined as a spectral shift. The influence of chromatic aberration of the lens, the coherence of the partially coherent light in the aperture, the radius of the aperture, and the spectral width of the spectrum of the aperture on the spectral shift are investigated in detail. The numerical results show that these parameters affect the spectral shift noticeably.
