The inherent aberrations of 90 degrees off-axis parabolic mirrors (OAPMs) are investigated. The resulting aberrations of different combinations of OAPMs for collimating and focusing the THz radiation are investigated. It is found that the arrangement with coinciding axes of the parent parabolas has a minimal geometrical optical spot of confusion.
