Color correction in planar optics configurations can be achieved by resorting to gradient-index rather than uniform-refractive-index substrates. The basic configuration, principle of correction, and calculated and experimental results are presented. The results reveal that, with an appropriate refractive index distribution along the thickness of the substrates, the color can be corrected over a wavelength range up to depending on incidence angles.
