The geometric optics of a new 3-D imaging system, which has several innovative features, is discussed. The principles governing the primary design of the system are considered in some detail, and the calculation method employed in achieving the basic design parameters is presented. The aberration of the system is then investigated in detail using primary aberration theory, and the limitations imposed on a light beam passing through the arrangement is discussed quantitatively.
