Chromatic Aberration

Principle objective of this lecture is to present on Chromatic Aberration. As in a raindrop or a prism, different wave-lengths of light are refracted at different angles (higher frequency ↔ greater bending). The light passing through a lens is slightly dispersed, so objects viewed through lenses will be ringed with color. This is known as chromatic aberration and it will always be present when a single lens is used. Chromatic aberration can be greatly reduced when a convex lens is combined with a concave lens with a different index of refraction.
