Abstract

The paper presents a methodology of calculation of the inner structure of two- and three-component hybrid liquid-membrane lenses with variable focal length that have corrected spherical aberration and coma. Specifically, the formulas for calculation of initial-design inner parameters (radii of curvatures of individual surfaces, axial thickness, and refractive indices of a material of the lens) of a thin-lens system are derived for a hybrid two-component system (doublet) made by one glass and one liquid-membrane lens, and a hybrid three-component lens (triplet) made by one glass lens and two liquid-membrane lenses, which both have variable focal length and corrected spherical aberration and coma for an object at infinity. As optimization during the optical design process requires the starting point be very close to the optimal solution, the presented approach can be successfully used for its calculation, as it is based on fundamental proven formulas of optical aberrations.
