Abstract

An analysis is made of refracting systems consisting of two spherical surfaces. Solutions are found for those systems having zero third-order spherical aberration. These are in the form of four one-parameter families of functions. Expressions for third-order coma and astigmatism are derived. Parameter domains for useful solutions are indicated. A method for applying these results to optical design is described.
