DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR PROJECTION AND FOCUSING OPTICAL SYSTEMS WITH DIFFRACTION ELEMENTS
G. I. Greisukh, I. M. Efimenko, S. A. Stepanov
Design strategy is discussed for optical systems relying on diffraction and refraction elements. Corrective capabilities of the simplest systems consisting of one diffraction and one or two refraction lenses are considered. Introduction of a diffraction lens into a system is shown to effect a complete elimination of the original monochromatic aberrations and a significant reduction of the level of higher-order residual ones.
