Abstract

By selective deposition of evaporated dielectrics it was found possible to form aspherical surfaces on plane glass plates which, when used with a lens, made the combination free from spherical aberration. A theory is given for the calculation of the correcting surfaces, and the experimental procedure for their preparation is described. The results are shown by means of ronchigrams.
