Extrinsic aberrations in optical imaging systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


This paper discusses extrinsic aberrations in optical systems and provides formulas for their computation. Extrinsic aberrations result when two optical systems are combined, and there is a mismatch between the exit pupil of the first system and the entrance pupil of the second system. Some significant aberration corrections can take place as a result of extrinsic aberrations.
