Abstract

The general two-mirror system used at finite conjugates is examined here. Relations for first-order geometric properties and third-order aberrations are given in terms of five design parameters: object distance, image distance, exit pupil size, and the two mirror magnifications. The conditions for aplanatic solutions are derived for conic mirrors. The curvatures of the astigmatic image surfaces are given, and the condition for anastigmatic solutions is derived. The relations are applied to infinite conjugate systems and spherical mirror systems as special cases.
