The results of a comparative analysis of the chromatism of diffractive and homogeneous refractive lenses are presented. The possibilities of correcting third and fifth-order spherochromatism of such lenses are discussed. Recommendations are given on the effective use of various types of lenses in hybrid refractive-diffractive optical systems.
