  • An initial construction satisfying aberration balance and multi-constraint control is essential for the design of an off-axis multi-reflective optical system with minimal aberration. In this paper, a mathematical model for calculating the initial structure of off-axis multi-reflective is established based on the grouping design method combining spatial ray tracing and aberration correction, and an improved Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is proposed to solve the initial structure problem of an off-axis multi-reflective optical system. The PSO of natural selection with shrinkage factor is applied to improve calculation accuracy and design efficiency, so as to obtain the initial structure of the off-axis multi-reflection optical system. In the last part of this paper, taking an Extreme UltraViolet (EUV) lithography projection objective with six-mirror reflective aspheric mirrors as an example, the reliability and effectiveness of this method are verified. A 0.33 numerical aperture EUV lithographic objective with wave-front error better than 1/80λ (λ=13.5 nm) RMS is achieved.
