Abstract
Plots of the index of refraction and of partial dispersion versus V-number have long been used as a standard tool in selecting glasses for chromatic correction. The change in the distribution of glasses on these plots for widely differing spectral regions has generally been ignored. Some sample plots demonstrate the adjustments in approach required for selecting glasses in alternative spectral regions.
