catadioptric imaging system

A system that uses both reflection and refraction to achieve its focal power. While the relative powers of the lenses and mirrors vary from system to system, the use of the reflective surfaces to achieve most of the power, in combination with refractive surfaces of little or zero power, produces an image that has improved aberrational characteristics.
