Abstract

The signal processing method used in transaxial tomography, reconstruction from projections, is applied to the design of a spherical gradient index corrector for the concentric “noflare” lens. The method yields a spherical gradient index lens that corrects the entire field of the lens. Motivation for the method is provided by a comparison of the Schmidt and super-Schmidt camera designs.
