Abstract

We have introduced an athermal chart that plots chromatic dispersive power and thermal dispersive power on a Cartesian coordinate, and we give the design method of a multilens system in contact that satisfies achromatism and athermalization. The advantages of this chart are (1) that the condition of achromatism and athermalization is clear and (2) that the approximate power of the lenses that compose the multilens system is easily found on the chart. Design indices are given through a few design examples with an athermal chart.
