27 September 2016 Design principles for Fresnel lenses in telecentric applications
Author Affiliations +
Fresnel lenses have been found by some optical systems designers to be useful in combination with a main lens to provide quality telecentric images. Aspheric Fresnel lenses are an ideal choice for this application because they achieve a high degree of telecentricity across the entire field of view and introduce very little distortion. In a telecentric system consisting of an aspheric Fresnel lens and an off the shelf non-telecentric main lens, the design parameters are few. Aberration theory, constraints on the visibility of the grooves, and physical constraints can effectively be used to quickly determine if a solution exists for a given application and identify the solution space if it does.
