Abstract
The imaging quality of an optical system depends on the magnitude of residual aberrations of the optical system. Aberrations of optical systems can be analytically expressed as a sum of aberrations of different orders. The most important for practice are the third-order aberrations (Seidel aberrations) and the fifth-order aberrations. Our work shows one of possible methods for determination of third-order aberration coefficients that is based on measurement of spherical aberration of the investigated optical system. The advantage of this method for determination of the third-order aberration coefficients is the fact that the measurement of spherical aberration can be experimentally relatively easily performed with a sufficient accuracy. This work presents a detailed theoretical analysis of the proposed method and relations for calculation of the third-order aberration coefficients.
