Abstract
In this work, we present a new method for calculating the primary aberration tolerance for optical systems with absorption. This method is based on obtaining a loss function of the system at the exit pupil and using this function to modulate the transmittance amplitude of exit pupil. Finally, the aberration tolerance is obtained by applying the Steel’s modification of the Maréchal tolerance method using a loss function to modulate the transmittance amplitude of the exit pupil. This method permits us to calculate the primary aberration tolerance taking into account absorption factors other than the annular pupil. We applied this method to calculate the primary aberration tolerance of a cemented achromatic doublet taking into account the energy losses due to the change of medium.
