Abstract

This paper presents a new method for designing a lens system stable against chromatic variation at a specified wavelength. Conventional lenses are corrected for chromatic aberration, but the new method suppresses chromatic changes of the marginal ray in the image-side. By doing so, paraxial properties of the lens system are stabilized against chromatic variation. Since the new method is based on paraxial ray tracing, the stabilizing conditions against chromatic variation are given by recurrence formulas. However, there is an analytic solution for the case of a cemented doublet in the air. A stable doublet at 405 nm wavelength is designed and analyzed.
