Abstract
Optical chromatism or dispersion, the variation of optical properties with radiation wavelength was discovered by Isaac Newton, who pursued the reflective route to avoid it, whereas Chester Moor Hall and John Dollond, discovered how to overcome it by means of balancing or correction. Chromatic correction implies the use of multiple optical elements of multiple materials in combination, such that their dispersive effects cancel each other.
