The purpose of this Critical Review is to provide an overview of the evolution and the state of the art of microscope objective design forms and the related family of optical disk objective design forms. Although these objectives have a venerable history, there are emerging applications, new design forms, and new manufacturing technologies that have recently generated substantial growth in these fields of application. A common goal of both objective families is diffraction-limited performance, but the optical disk objectives have the advantages of a limited spectral range and refocusing for extra-axial objects.
