Abstract

High-quality Dyson imaging spectrometers are designed by applying a telecentric condition for off-axis image points. By imposing this condition for two different wavelengths, designs presenting low aberrations for the whole spectral range of the system are obtained. A UV–TO–NIR fast design (f/1.5) exhibiting excellent optical performance is presented.
