Chromatic effects of radial gradient-index materials have been analyzed, and several important conclusions have been derived in terms of material dispersion data. The use of Buchdahl dispersion data, both for base glass materials and ion-exchange pairs, provides some simple relationships for chromatic aberration and helps in selecting suitable materials for producing achromatic radial gradient-index lenses.
