Imaging and Fourier transform properties of an allsphericalmirror system
Abstract
An allsphericalmirror system for applications in coherent image processing is described and analyzed. This onetoone system is panchromatic and can be made to have minimal cosmetic defects. Such a system offers advantages such as multiple wavelength operations and the introduction of minimal scattering noise into the final image. A sample design that is diffractionlimited (for f/8) over the entire area of a standard 35mm slide is given. The Fourier transform properties of this system are acceptable for many applications.
