Abstract
It has been demonstrated recently that high performance apochromatic lenses and objectives can be designed using optical liquids that have abnormal dispersion properties. This has opened the way to low cost apochromatic objectives with optical quality equivalent to lenses using Calcium Fluoride and which are superior in other ways as well (reduced scattering, for example). This paper describes a study on correlating the refractive index dispersion of optical liquids to their chemical structures. The ultimate goal is to establish an understanding of how different chemical moieties affect optical properties of organic liquids.
