angle of incidence
In geometric optics, the angle of incidence is the angle between a ray incident on a surface and the line perpendicular to the surface at the point of incidence, called the normal

thin lenses
In optics, a thin lens is a lens with a thickness that is negligible compared to the radii of curvature of the lens surfaces
chromatic aberration
In optics, chromatic aberration is an effect resulting from dispersion in which there is a failure of a lens to focus all colors to the same convergence point
optical aberrations
An optical aberration is a departure of the performance of an optical system from the predictions of paraxial optics
