Abstract

In this paper, as a supplement to Part I, three examples will be provided to verify our methods. In the first example of a double Gauss system, the chromatic aberrations calculated by our methods and those given by the Seidel aberrations are compared. Then we will present two examples analyzing the generalized chromatic aberrations in refractive system with freeform surfaces by our methods. The stereomicroscope is utilized to demonstrate the feasibility and consistency of both ray- and wavefront-based methods. The anamorphic imaging objective lens proves that it is necessary to consider the pupil aberration when it cannot be neglected. In both examples, the surface decomposed a full-field display of the chromatic aberrations shows us that it is a convenient and powerful tool to analyze the generalized chromatic aberrations in nonrotationally symmetric refractive optical systems.
