We derive the analytic formula of the output surface of a spherochromatic lens. The analytic solution ensures that all the rays for a wide range of wavelengths fall inside the Airy disk. So, its amount of spherical aberration is small enough to consider the lens as diffracted limited. We test the singlet lens using ray-tracing methods and find satisfactory results, including spot diagram analysis for three different Abbe wavelengths.
