Monochromatic aberration

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In optical apparatuses such as curved mirrors, lenses or prisms, chromatic aberrations, i.e., unintended separation of colors, may occur. However, when optical aberrations distort monochromatic light the effect is called monochromatic aberration.

There are five known monochromatic aberrations:

  1. Spherical aberration
  2. Coma
  3. Astigmatism
  4. Curvature of field
  5. Distortion (optics)
