Abstract

Imaging characteristics are analyzed for a wavefront coding system suffering from off-axis aberrations such as primary astigmatism and primary coma. Some analytical expressions for the optical transfer function are obtained by using the stationary-phase method. These expressions give the relationship between the optical transfer function and the off-axis aberrations. Some cases are computed and illustrated graphically. It is shown that the wavefront coding system has a high tolerance to primary astigmatism and a low sensitivity to primary coma.
