Abstract
Using progressive design method, we designed and built a wide field of view (FOV) catadioptric lens for LWIR earth sensors in the 14 to 16 μm range. The prototype lens is compatible with 640×480 uncooled FPA and 25 microns pixel pitch. Its full field of view is 170° and F number is 0.86. The f-theta distortion is less than 1%. Besides, the system works well during a temperature range of -40°C~+60°C.
