Corrected mirror systems with double reflection



We propose objectives consisting of two mirrors with central holes for passage of a light beam. The optical layout ensures multiple reflection of rays from both mirrors. We consider several approaches to calculating the design parameters for which three and four aberrations do not occur. The objectives can be used in optical devices operating in the UV and IR regions of the spectrum.
