Simple equations used for analyzing chromatic aberrations of Selfoc lenses were derived in terms of Buchdahl chromatic coordinates and Buchdahl dispersion constants. The equations that employ gradient-index chromatic constants Ψ1 and Ψ2 are used for selecting suitable ion-exchange pairs to design an achromatic Selfoc lens.
