An analysis of kinoform image reconstruction error is presented. This analysis considers the effects of the error introduced by the kinoform approximation and the quantization effects of plotting. The error measure developed is applied to a proposed method for computing kinoforms. Numerical results indicate that images produced by this method offer considerable reduction in the error when compared with images produced from kinoforms made with the random phase method.
