Medical Definition of Newtonian aberration

1. When using white light through a lens system, it is inevitable that different wave lengths (colours) are brought to a focus at slightly different points. As a consequence, there are chromatic aberations in the image, good microscope objectives are therefore corrected for this at two wave lengths (achromats) or at three wave lengths (apochromats), as well as for spherical aberration.
