Abstract

A method is described that permits the calculation of a cemented doublet with a given spherical aberration and coma at the edge of the lens. In particular the aberrations can be set to zero. Given one glass, the equations reported in this paper permit the determination of a second matching glass that minimizes the spherochromatism and coma of the lens. This result is obtained by the introduction, into the third-order thin-lens formulas, the third-order values of the aberration coefficients, as derived from the equation developed by Mossotti which yields zero finite aberrations for the same lens with added thickness. After a brief historical introduction, the third-order equations are developed and tables for the color-correcting glasses and SI and SII (the Seidel third-order coefficients) are given for objects at infinity and at a magnification of −1, both for flint- and crown-leading cases. The paper closes with a table of corrected doublets.
