Abstract

We present a general analytic and close-form formula to determine the shape of a surface that corrects the spherical aberration generated by an arbitrary number of preceding surfaces. The equation is tested for a variety of optical systems, including doublets, triplets, and more sophisticated systems with at least six interfaces.
