Abstract
Joseph Petzval (1807-1891) designed the first high aperture objective for photography. His invention was based on a successful study of the aberrations of optical systems, and elaborated the theorem named after him. This law formulates the requirements to be fulfilled by an optical system so that it gives a planar image, and it is nowadays taken into account when constructing large field and high resolution lens systems for optical microlithography applied in the manufacture of integrated circuits.
