Abstract

A direct method for compensation of low order aberrations with large PV value was presented in this paper. In which, the relationship between the optical layout parameters and the output aberration coefficients were derived by ray matrix method. Then, the adjustment parameters calculated by the equations were used to change the optical layout parameters to compensate the low order aberrations with defocus and astigmatism. The effectiveness of this method was verified by simulations based on the optical models built in a optical design software. It shows that the low order aberrations can be accurately compensated to a level below 0.5λ by the direct method.
