Abstract
Reflective optics is used widely in optical systems for their achromatization, large aperture and lightweight compared with refractive systems. An infrared four-mirror optical system with large relative aperture working in the 7.7~10.3 micron long wavelength infrared band is designed by using four reflective mirrors. The design principle, design results are described in this paper. The system has a circinal wide field of view with 1.5°×1.5°. The MTF of the system is diffraction-limited and the distortion is less than 1.0%. The ratio of focal length to total length is about 1/1.04,so the structure of the system is compact. The image quality is evaluated for each field, which shows that the design makes a good system with high image quality.
