Abstract

The paper deals with the problem of replacing a thin lens with a thick lens having similar third-order aberration properties as the thin lens. The equations that make possible the calculation of parameters of the thick lens, which has the same value of focal length (or transverse magnification) and one of the Seidel aberration coefficients (either Seidel aberration coefficient of spherical aberration or Seidel aberration coefficient of coma) as the thin lens for given position of the entrance pupil and object, are derived. The application of the proposed method for calculation of parameters of the thick lens is shown in examples.
