Design of three-element night-vision goggle objectives.


Night-vision goggle objectives are often composed of six or more conventional lens elements with spherical surfaces and homogeneous refractive indices. Special elements such as aspheres, diffractive optics, and gradient-index materials can be used to reduce the total number of lenses required to meet military design specifications. A study was performed to examine the use of various combinations of these special surfaces to determine the minimum number of elements that can be used to construct the objective system. We present and compare the best resulting designs.
