Abstract

A large class of ideal second-stage concentrators is unified by the same formalism based on the edge principle. As a result, useful new second stages may be designed.

If the edge rays are not focused at point B but rather produce a coma spread at the focal plane, the rays considered in the design may be the actual edge rays at each point of the reflector rather than the ficitious rays converging to B. Obviously the consequent concentration then would exceed Eq. (1).
