Abstract

A general method is described for choosing combinations of two optical glass types for the design of an achromatic cemented doublet lens which is required to yield specified amounts of third-order spherical and comatic aberration. Data are presented indicating the preferred crown glasses for use with 605380 and 689309 flint glasses, as typical illustrations of the qualitative aspects of the group of preferred crown glasses for use with a given flint. Formulas are given for computing the doublet radii from the glass constants.
