Abstract

The spectral dispersions of rabbit, rat, pigeon, and human crystalline lens material have been measured with a Pulfrich refractometer. The refractive indices all increase rapidly at the violet end of the spectrum so that the chromatic aberrations of the eyes of these species cannot be derived adequately from Cornu’s formula, as had previously been assumed.
