Abstract

A method of paraxial zoom lens design is proposed that makes it possible to determine the optical powers and component movements of a zoom lens with the required zoom ratio. The method is based on the theory of generalized parameters, which can be used to analyze a zoom system by varying only one parameter. All possible zoom lenses with two movable components are considered for an object at infinity.
