Author Affiliations +
A calculation is presented for meridional rays of the ray path deviation in a conformal dome in which both the shape of the inner and outer surfaces are specified in detail so as to examine under what conditions the ray path deviation might be minimized by independently adjusting the shape of the inner surface. Specific results are given for the case that both surfaces are ellipsoidal in shape.
