Abstract

This paper presents a calculation method of chromatic aberration of such kinds of optical systems based on the aberration theory of plane-symmetric optical systems, and the analytic expressions of the axial chromatic aberration and chromatic change in the magnification at an image plane of any position are derived. The resultant expressions are used to calculate the chromatic aberration of two single-lens optical systems with a large incidence angle, and the calculation results are compared to the ones obtained from a ray-tracing program to validate the chromatic aberration expressions. The study shows that the calculation accuracy of the chromatic aberration expressions is satisfactory. The analytical analysis of chromatic aberration is helpful in the imaging analysis and design of plane-symmetric optical systems.
