Abstract
The design process of optical systems requires to obtain residual aberrations of designed optical systems as small as possible. By analysis of the dependence of aberrations on the numerical aperture and field of view, it is possible to find such values of numerical aperture and field of view, where the residual aberration is zero. Such values of numerical aperture and field of view are called correction zones. The work theoretically analyses the described problem and equations are derived for expression of wave aberration coefficients using correction zones for aberrations of the third and fifth order. Finally, there was done an analysis of optimal values of correction zones and optimal position of the centre of reference sphere using derived equations. This analysis was performed for the case when it is required the maximal value of wave aberration to be minimized.
