Radially symmetric pupil plane phase retardation functions are derived that extend focal depth and alleviate third-order spherical aberration (SA) effects. The radial symmetry of these functions means that they can be more conveniently manufactured by use of traditional techniques such as diamond machining than previously reported filters with rectangular(More)
A quartic phase retardation function is described that reduces the variation of the intensity of the focal point of incoherent imaging systems suffering from primary third-order aberrations limited to coma and astigmatism. Corresponding modulation transfer functions are shown to remain practically invariant for moderate amounts of coma and astigmatism.
