Abstract

We discuss both numerically and analytically how the space–bandwidth product and the information density of lenses scale as functions of their diameter and f-number over many orders of magnitude. This information may be useful for the design of optical computing and interconnection systems. For diffractive lenses, cost is defined as the number of resolution elements the lithographic production system must have; the relationship of this quantity to the space–bandwidth product and information density is also given.
