Abstract

Chromatic aberration is an important artifact that influences image quality. Thus, it should be optimized during lens design. However, the typical combination and selection method of glass materials for the visible band can hardly satisfy the apochromatic requirements of short-wave infrared (SWIR) lenses. Therefore, we propose a method of glass selection for apochromatic lens design in the SWIR band through vector operation based on the Buchdahl model and third-order aberration theory. The proposed method overcomes limitations of traditional methods and unstable calculation results of special material properties. A design example is presented, which indicates that the proposed method can correct the secondary spectrum in the SWIR band and simplify the design using ordinary mass-produced glasses.
