In this research, a theoretical investigation had been done to study and correct distortion aberration which happened in electron magnetic lenses while it is used as projector lenses in transmission electron microscope. In this study, inverse design had been used MATLAB environment and by representing the axial magnetic field for doublet magnetic lens with axial magnetic function as a target function.
