Abstract
We obtained novel analytic expressions which permit us to realize the optical design of any thick lens, this analysis include both first and exact order design. We employ the conic constant of the first surface to correct the marginal spherical aberration. We analyzed both finite and infinite conjugates cases. Examples done with our methodology also show good agreement with commercial optical design programs.
