Zemax 5 - Paraxial to Real Lens Layout

We construct a 1:1 doubly telecentric system using paraxial (or perfect) lenses in Zemax. The supplier catalogs are used to add Edmund Optics doublets.

Below there are two Zemax files: One for the paraxial layout and another using catalog doublets.

1.Repeat Zemax entry from this tutorial
–Each lens in the doubly telecentric shall have the following:
•35 mm EFL
•10 mm diameter object/image
•Magnification = -1
–Result should be a doubly telecentric lens using stock doublets.
2.Refine first order microscope from Zemax tutorial #4 with real lenses
–Replace paraxial lenses with Edmund stock singlets
–This system will probably have a curved field
•Ignore for now, since we will be talking more about “field curvature” later
