Design of diffractive singlets for monochromatic imaging.


The Seidel aberrations of a rotationally-symmetric diffractive lens with an arbitrary phase profile are presented. It is shown that by a proper choice of phase function and aperture stop position, third-order coma and astigmatism can be eliminated for any chosen conjugate ratio. Since a diffractive lens has an inherent zero value for the Petzval sum, the… (More)
