Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We study the formation of caustic surfaces formed in both convex-plano and plano-convex conic lenses by considering a plane wave incident on the lens along the optical axis. By using the caustic formulas and a paraxial approximation, we derive analytic expressions to evaluate the spherical aberration to the third order, and a formula to reduce this aberration is provided. Furthermore, we apply the formulas to evaluate the circle of least confusion for a positive lens as a function of all parameters involved in the process of refraction through the conic lenses.
