% light loss due to chromatic aberration?
Posted By Paul Kammueller
Does anyone know of any data that would indicate what percentage of light loss one effectively experiences with achromats of various sizes & focal ratios, etc. since certain proportions of certain wavelengths get scattered -- i.e. violet light gets scattered the most in many achromats, but is there a way to know what percentage of the total incoming white light that represents? Is it meaningful? Is it on the order of <1%, 1%, 5% ?
