This paper discusses the possibility of creating objectives for spectral optical coherence tomography in the 1260–1360 nm spectral region. It is shown that a single kinoform cannot act as an objective with a well-known value of longitudinal chromatism in this region of the spectrum. The problem thus formulated can be solved only in “hybrid” schemes containing lens elements and kinoform elements.
